confused Access to sable power antenna

Hi:
My wife's 2003 Sable Wagon got the power antenna bent. I went to replace it, but the plastic gear wire stayed inside. So I need to open the motor caseing. Just how big a deal is getting at the power antenna. I got the spare tire out, removed the felt, but next is a serious steel almost quarter panel. It has wires going thru it and bolted to it, am I right that this is no longer simple? I'm pretty handy but in my 70's and wondering if I should go to an installer.
