I pulled mine, but it won't be of much help to you. Mine was just screwed into the skin with sheet metal screws and the caulk was cracking. Pretty easy to remove. There was a connector just inside where the coax disappeared into the antenna base, but I don't know if it was original.
If you replaced the original antenna, a typical problem with short pieces of RG-6 and RG-59 cable is that the center connector will move inside the insulation. First thing to check is to be sure that the center connector is sticking out to at least as far as the edge of the screw ring. Be careful when you insert it into the antenna that you get it inserted into the female part of the connector on the antenna. I have had cables with this problem that have worked for months and then suddenly quit.
