Sunshade out of channel

Sort of new here, only had my WK 5.7 for a few weeks, love it.
I'm a tall guy and my head rubs the roof anyway when driving, but the other day I hit a rather large bump in the road (an elevated railroad crossing...) and my head hit the sunshade and knocked it out of the track on the driver side of the sunroof. I've tried gently pulling it back in, but it is really flimsy and I don't want to break it. Is there an easy way to fix this? The shade is incredibly hard to move now and I don't want to break anything out of reach.

btw, JG.org has been awesome for every question I've had so far, but couldn't find any threads like this. Keep it up!

Re: Sunshade out of channel

Alright guys, I got out there and just muscled it back in place. Turns out that it being flimsy was a bonus. I was able to slide it all the way back & vent the sunroof. From there, I just bent the middle and force it back down. There is a small, 1-1/2" tab on the front of the shade that needs to be in the channel, not the whole thing. Problem fixed! Except it doesn't seem to be as easy to move now, which I think is better, it was a bit too loose before.
