Re: Is there an easy fix to screw in antenna snapped of...
You can drill out the snapped-off screw and re-tap the hole. Then just put in a new (and slightly larger) screw. You will probably need a larger screw if you drill it out past the existing threaded hole. If you're lucky, you can sometimes just push a screwdriver against the edge of the screw and rotate the screw out that way until you can grip it with pliers and unscrew it. Then just put in a new screw.

That looks like the mount area of an old cell phone antenna, the washer nozzle has a hose connected to it and there is no hole or hose there just glass. what happens when you turn on the rear wiper and try to use the washers?
Did the antenna break off in the mount or did the mount break.If antenna broke off in mount I would try drilling and tapping it.If you need a whole mount.Remove plug from back of radio attach good mechanics wire to it undo outer mount when you pull the wire out of the car the mechanics wire will follow afer you get it out put the mechanics wire on the new one tape over the wire to make it a smooth transition and pull mechanics wire inside the vehicle to reroute the antenna wire back to the radio.Be carefull you shouldnt have to pull super hard
If the remainder of the bolt protrudes above the surrounding metal(you'll need about 1mm), you can cut a groove with a hacksaw into the bolt and screw it out with a screwdriver. If this is not possible you can use an "Easy-out" and here is where you start purchasing items. This entails drilling into the bolt shaft using a drill bit about half the diameter of the bolt shaft itself. The correct size "Easy-out" tool is then screwed into the newly made hole(it screws in counter clockwise) and as the tool grips the inside of the bolt shaft it will unscrew the bolt shaft. A third alternative would be to drill out the bolt completely and use what is called a heli-coil to repair the hole. I doubt the last will be viable as there is not much metal to work with. As a last resort you can purchase an aftermarket antenna and install it in a differant place on the car's bodywork.
The top and side mounts are easy, unless you snap off a bolt. To do the side dog bones, remove the right front service panel behind the wheel, yes you have to take the tire off, and remove the battery tray on the left side. Remove the long screws holding the tray on through the left front wheel well. Replacing the dog bones is take out the two bolts and then bolt the new ones in. Top mount is simply loosen the nuts, remove and replace, tricky part is to support the engine while you swap the mount. Bottom mount takes a little more time and a jack. If you never changed the tensioner, you may want to do this while you have that right front service panel open.
You need to loosen the motor mount slightly--just a full turn or two. Place a jack under the oil pan and lift the engine until the strain is relieved on the motor mount and finish removal. Replacement installation is the opposite except you'll want to tighten the new motor mount into place fully (if possible) before lowering the jack.
