antenna removal tool?

Now that I totally wrecked my antenna screw (tried using a hammer and screwdriver to tap it loose)

Is there a tool available to take it off ? I tried pliers with no luck

I think I will have to buy a whole antenna set up

Will when i was taking the fender off the car i noticed that it was just a bolt screw. Could you just un-screw it from the bottom?

ya that holds the mount on the inside, it wont take the whole unit out, you have to take the top nut off to take the whole unit out

Ok, ok...i see what your talken about, I went to the junk yard to get an antenna. I see that bolt on top. So you used a needle nose pliers? How did that work?

I used the needle nose pliers to loosen the bolt and it was off in a second
