Broken antenna 2008 Compass

Greetings fellow Jeep owners,
My girlfriend has a 2008 Jeep Compass. The antenna has snapped off at the post and I am curious how much effort it takes to replace the bracket, guessing depending on where it broke I am going to have to replace the bracket under the fender because it is likely I am not going to be able to get the broken post piece out. From my understanding I need to take the front wheel off and undo the wheel well cover in order to even access it, is this correct? If so, is it easy to access and replace? I have fairly large hands and not sure how much space I am going to have. Also, is there any special tools one might need to accomplish this task?

Thank you for your time.
