Default Apparent leak in 2013 Sport roof antenna?

Howdy, Fellow Fit Owners:

I seem to have a problem with my 2013 Fit Sport. After rains (which it does a lot in Western Washington!), I seem to have water coming into my rear compartment. Based on a quick diagnosis, it seems to be leaking around the base of the antenna. Water accumulates in the plastic door to the child seat tether bracket. When I open that up, it pours out.

Also, the antenna seems to be less than firmly connected to the roof, as I can raise the base a bit and see how water can get through.

Anyone else have this problem? Any good solutions to it? How difficult is it to open the headliner in the back and inspect the antenna connections (perhaps it's just loose)? I guess I need to seal it with a gasket or silicone sealant.

All comments are appreciated!
