The only sujestion i can think of would be to create a small funnel/well at the base of the aerial with some bluetak and fill it with oil or penetration fluid then leave it overnight.
then with a piece of fine sandpaper, sand the rest of the aerial that is showing so that it is smooth.
You may need to gently twist the aerial back and forth.
Failing that you may need to remove the mount and adapt it for a bee sting aerial.

I had the same problem and got round it by replacing the aerial with one from a Mazda Pickup, a bit of fettling was required but it works fine!!:
@rax Thanks for the tip I will give it a try Regards Mushman
Thanks for your reply I will see if I can pick one up on eBay
