Replace it. The Nylon cord that runs up the antenna and coils around the hub has broken.

Either a wrecker or new.

Can I buy just the mast with the cord (like I did for my wife'* Jeep Grand), or is it the whole thing, motor and all??

GM doesn't sell the mast with the cord. They sell the mast only, or the whole unit.

Agreed. Don't bother trying to take the antenna apart, it is one big mess. Throw it away and get a used one or go to www.gmpartsdirect.com
