You cant just unplug a fuse because it also runs your lighter (the small bunch of wires) you may be able to pull it up by hand, or just replace the mast.

Remove the nut, spacer and bushing that holds down the antenna on the outside car body. Then turn the radio ON. As the antenna extends out, carefully pull out the antenna mast. There will be a plastic portion with teeth at the end. Remember the direction of teeth. When you install the new antenna, the teeth will go in that direction. Insert the new antenna into the antenna housing. Make sure the antenna teeth engages the antenna motor by moving the antenna up & down. Turn the radio OFF and the antenna motor will pull the antenna back in. Reinstall the nut, spacer, bushing and you're done.

You have to remove the front right tire, and go up through the inside of the fender. A lot of work just to remove an antenna! I just did this on my 1999 Montero Sport. Once you remove the back of the fender, you just remove a few nuts from the antenna mount, unplug the power supply, unplug the antenna from the radio and pull the antenna cable out. You can save some time with a short screw driver and don't remove the tire, just the bottom of the fender (and flares). For mounting purposes is best if you use the original part. Before you remove the cable from the inside (if the antenna is not good) cut the cable and use it to pull the new antenna's one. Trust me the hardest part is getting that cable in.
