Well if your feeling brave you could slit the coax lengthways for about 30mm, tease out the inner cable, cut it and solder the diode in (end with band towards tv end) insulating with shrink sleeving or electrical tape, then tuck it all back inside. More tape to cover the slit.
I would think it would be easier to just reopen the modulator and put the diode in there!
