Rear view camera antenna

I have a fairly new 2015 Dutchman Voltage 3970 toy hauler that came equipped with a Voyager rear view camera and monitor. At some point between the time I left the dealer and arrived at my destination, the antenna had snapped off. What's left reminds me of when you break a light bulb in the metal shell and have to delicately unscrew what's left without cutting your fingers. I've been trying to unscrew what's left of the antenna to no avail. It looks like I could drill into it and, maybe, pull it out that way. I'm afraid to do that for fear that I'll drill too far and ruin the whole camera.

Has anyone has this issue and, if so, how did you fix it? I have a replacement antenna all ready to go.

Thanks,

Jerry

When the shaft of my antenna snapped off I had to replace the "complete antenna including the base" with a new antenna... (not just the antenna shaft).

Thanks for the reply. I called the company from whom I bought the antenna and learned that there's a set screw in front....I couldn't or hadn't seen it. Takes a tiny allen wrench. Unscrewed the set screw and what was left of the old antenna came right out.
