Antenna rod broken on the threading piece

I have searched through this forum and found a few helpful posts, but I'm wondering if someone can give me a step-by-step walkthrough on how to fix this problem.

I have a 2002 Ford Focus ZTS and when I was brushing the snow off my car from the snowstorm, I accidentally broke my antenna. The mount is still intact, but the rod got snapped at the base (where the threading is). I see no way of getting it out, so I'm wondering if anyone knows which part it is and how to do it in step-by-step.

Visual illustrations will be helpful, but not necessary.

Again, my car is 2002 Ford Focus ZTS.

Thanks guys!

remove the dome light and you can then get to the nut that holds the base on. From there is pretty pretty self explanatory.

I dont know what the ford part number, but if you search ebay you should be able to find one for around $10-15 bucks.

that is exactly how I broke mine!

The base is available from your Ford dealer for about ten to fifteen bucks if I remember correctly. They'll also be happy to sell you an antenna mast for $40, but I found an identical off-the-shelf generic one at Autozone for $10, which gives as good FM reception as the original one.

Broke mine twice already.

Now when I go to the salvage yard, I grab extras. Why spend almost 20 bucks a piece when you can get them for next to nothing.

If they didn't make them so damn cheap, we wouldn't have to replace them at all.

...after a couple of more Wausau winters, you're gonna realize that they made the whole dang car from that same grade of metal.
