Sunroof hell 2000 jetta

I have a 2000 Jetta with a power sunroof.
The sliding sunshade does not retract by hand and seems to bind up when the sunroof is opened.
Stupidly, I have been trying to remove the shade with delicate force, and have managed to completely destroy the two foreward guides.
Now, I am trying to disconnect the aft part of the shade from the mechanism and pull the thing out.
My thinking is that If nothing is connected, I can slide it open and closed by hand.
How the heck can I access the rear part of the shade to disconnect it?
