Default Removing antenna base

Does anyone know how to remove the base of the antenna, the part that is in contact with the roof? Mine broke/is disintegrating and I have another one on my old Insight I'm using for parts but I'm unsure if it screws off or need to be pried off and I don't want to break it.

There is a nut on the bottom side of the mount under the headliner.

Thanks for the replies. I thought that was how but wanted to make sure before I proceeded. My antenna is being held on with duct tape right now, looks pretty nasty
