New to site. Not sure if I'm posting this in the correct place but I'm looking for help removing my old radio antenna from a 2000 Ford Explorer AWD. I have removed the plastic covering and the three star-shaped screws from the antenna mount; however, the antenna is still not coming out? Am I missing a screw somewhere under the wheel or something?

Drop the passenger side plastic inner fender to gain access to the antenna mounting point/bolt(s). Also, pop off the black plastic trim piece on the antenna base. IIRC there are some Phillips screws under there.
