One has teeth and the other is smooth. You remove it by undoing the 10 mm bolt that is holding the mast in. Then tunr on the radio and pull up on the antennae mast at the same time. This should get it out. You put the mast in in reverse of taking it out.

well, it does have an alpine stereo in it, could have been wired wrong as well. do you perchance know which wires are for the antenna on the dash side?
