Default Replacing antenna wire?

Hi, I bought a 1993 Ford Ranger. The antenna wire was broken and I pulled it out from somewhere behind the glove compartment. I bought a new antenna and have been working for three days trying to figure out how to feed the new wire back through the hold and to somewhere behind the glove compartment? I can get a clothes hanger through, but once I tie the antenna wire to it, it is too fat (I suppose) to go through. Is there a secret to this? I read somewere you may have to take the fender off? Why would that be. Any help would be appreciated.

The "usual" way to replace that wire is to use the old wire to fish the new wire through... having already yanked the old wire out, hmm...

If you loosen up the fender it makes it easier to fish into the cab of the truck.

Just 4-5 10mm bolts holding it on at the top where the hood closes.
