Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. I assume you are speaking about the antenna motor. If so, you need to jack the vehicle, up, and remove the tire. Then block the front end so the weight is not on the jack (so you can work safely). When the tire is off, remove the plastic inner fender liner. Once the liner is off, you can access the mounting bolts for the antenna motor. Remove the nut that holds the top of the mast to the fender with an antenna removal tool, then remove the motor. Once the motor is removed, remove the bolt that holds the round black plastic cover on the motor. Inside the motor is the antenna rotating drum. This is where your broken piece of the mast is. Put the black cover back on and then reassemble the motor under the fender. Put everything back together and feed the new antenna mast into the antenna tube from the top.
