Stick a two-pronged tool in the two holes in the OEM antenna chrome thing on top. Unbolt it by spinning counterclockwise, lefty-loosey. Take out old assembly. Replace with new assembly. Plug new thing in.

Having a problem with the antenna, I've removed the chrome thing etc etc.. now unscrewing the antenna is a B****. I been twisting it for about ten mins, and it ain't going anywhere. Any Ideas?

theres no bolts or anything under it?
no. it looks threaded on, so I kept twisting the antenna to remove it. I been spinning it for awhile and it did not even bother to come off. Sprayed WD-40 and it helped twist a bit more, but still didn't come off..

You have to pull the entire assembly from inside the trunk. Unscrew the bolts and unplug the wires.

If you're trying to remove the retractable antenna from the top, you better work out first.
But on a serious note, you can't remove it from outside of the car.

Oh, do you mean the remaining rubber bit that centers the antenna in place and keeps water out? The one that is under the chrome ring?

Once you remove that ring and removed the mast (via the trunk area), then this rubber piece should just come off. If its suck on the car, the PO most likely glued it on.
