Welcome to Just Answer Chrysler my name is Mark.

 

Here are the removal instructions for the antenna.

 

  • Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  • Remove antenna mast by unscrewing mast from antenna body. On vehicles equipped with manual retractable antenna, lower antenna fully.
  • Remove shroud (if equipped).
  • Remove antenna nut and adapter
  • Disconnect antenna body cable from instrument panel antenna cable.
  • Remove inner fender shield as necessary to gain access to mounting fasteners.
  • Remove antenna body and cable assembly from fender

    I have tried to use a screwdriver and hammer to turn the nut but it won't move.

    Alright, then it might just be rusted in place. You'll need to try some penetrating oil and let it sit and work for awhile.

     

    If that fails to work, you might need to cut the nut off so you can get this apart.
