Depends on where it's loacted on that particular model. I tried fixing the one on my brother's Sable a while back. It was on the right front fender and I accessed the motor mechanism by removing the front tire and fender well. Unfortunately after I disassembled it and got the bad part out I discovered you couldn't buy a replacement mast (thanks Ford!). Ended up engineering a fixed mast using the existing motor as a mount.

Not sure about Nissans

I repaired my antenna last year: on my Honda (not sure about Nissan) the antenna extends and retracts by way of a nylon pinion. It looks like a long zip tie with gear teeth notched into it; mine had broken inside the motor.

I got the replacement part from (actually bought mine on EBay, but this is their site). They include a cheat sheet about how to fix your model car, so maybe they can help you too. Good luck with it!

Your probably better off buying a new power antenna as opposed to replacing the mast. It saves time, money & its 100% new. You can get one for around $25 in Arizona. Harada, Metra & Hirschmann are good examples & they make a universal style that will fit your car just as good if not better than the original. I can help you out with advice on the install if you want. I have been a professional mobile & marine electronics installer since 1988.
