I broke off the USB port cover and the little bobble off the flap is still stuck inside the handset. I've tried digging with a pin but can't get it out.

What's the best thing to do?

Remove the rear cover?

Sorry :P i had too
also try needle nose tweezers
but if you play on replacing them yourself, i think you would have to open the back aither way

As murphyslaw just said use very slim tweezers, or something to hook the rubber feet and pull it out, there are videos on youtube for this.

Don't remove the rear cover. All spare parts of Xperia Z1 are glued together tightly. It is very hard to separate them.
There is no guarantee that you can keep the waterproof as before.
Install a new one directly if the bit dose not interfere.
If you must need to dig it out, needle or pin and patience is what you need.

I got no problems with the waterproofing side, we have more waterproof products than Sony could ever get their hands on at work lol
