I'd lower the mast to horizontal and remove the bottom cap.  You should be 
able to remove the top mast section from there.
You'll need  a wrench to remove the screws securing the cap and a block of 
wood and a hammer to tap the edges of the cap to remove it.  Mark the cap 
and mast so you can replace it accurately
Replacing the cap you'll need to accurately align the screw holes and then 
don't over tighten them..

Good luck
