The threaded piece on the bottom is the base. It is supposed to be connected to the insulator which is the center white piece. It all comes out as one unit. Take a look at a new plug out of the box.

I assume this has a 4.6L then? This is a very common problem. Go to MustangForums.com and search sparkpulg broken or something like that. There is a tool you can rent/buy to get the plug out.

its a 5.4 no 4.6 in that year. the spark plug broke it happens all the time, the 3v motor plugs suck there is a special tool to remove them that you screw into the hole and it pushes the porcelain down and breaks the ground strap then you use the other part of the tool that cuts threads into the bottom metal piece and stays and you extract it out. you need the tool to do it correctly and not damage the threads in the cylinder head.
