My antenna just snapped off this morning due to 6 degree temp and a slight bump with a broom while brushing off snow. It looks like there is a screw that snapped off which connect antenna to base. Based on this thread, I assume that the screw is attached to the base(male) and the antenna (female) is threaded onto it... any tips on how to get the broken screw out of the antenna so I only have to buy a new base? Thanks

It's a winter rite-of-passage for northern Focus owners to break their antenna while clearing off snow.

The fastener is cheap pot metal and is a magnet for corrosion, so good luck trying to salvage it. The dealer sells the base for about ten bucks and Autozone sells a generic antenna for the same amount.
