At this point it may help to "assist" the motor by pulling. Meanwhile, you have taken notice of which side of the hole the nylon teeth are. Once out, get your new aerial and feed the nylon tail into the hole, with the nylon teeth oriented the way the old one came out. NOW get an assistant to trun the radio off. Giving the nylon tail a slight push the motor should catch the teeth and draw it in. Again you may need to assist the motor in getting the mast itself in. (Do this with the mast fully collapsed) Replace nut - Job done. I've used this technique several times after my brother in law showed me how it's done. He fits stereos, DVDs alarms radar detectors, phone kits etc to some very exotic vehicles for a living so he knows his stuff.
