Don't suppose you have had a quick search around this forum? This has been discussed several times and there is a few guides. Quick summary:

1) Remove front overhead light fitting.
2) Remove aerial mast from top of car.
3) Where the light fitting has been removed you will see the wires connected to the aerial base. Remove these.
4) Unscrew the single bolt holding the aerial base in place and remove Aerial base.
5) Carefully clean the exposed hole to ensure the new aerial base offers a proper water tight seal.
6) Fit in reverse....you may need someone to hold the aerial base until the bolt is firm although it may align on it's own using clips.
