Sunroof shade stuck plea help

My sunroof shade is stuck about half way. It doesn't close all the way.
I took off the sun roof and "fixed it" tested it with out the window and it worked. But when I put the window back the sunroof shade would not close all the way again. And
If I try to open the sunroof all the way, it gets off alignment about half way as well.
It gets off alignment on the drivers side. And the shade appears to be stuck on the drivers side as well.
Any ideas?

it's # 17 the two plastic clip is no good. I could tell you that even if you replace them they won't work right. I had the same problem, just remove the cover all together. It's much easier that way.

Thanks for the reply. I was actually at the stealership today and did not buy the clips. One was $8 and the other $15. Geez.
But the sunroof was
Closing fine but a few weeks ago it sucked upthe shade i took it out. And ever since then the shade nor sunroof can retract all the way back.

I'm thinking something is stuck. But I can't get to looking back there. Any ideas?

Some how my sun shade sliped back into the headline. It is so fare back that I can not see it or grab it to pull forward?
I guess I will need to take apart my head line to fish it out.

I hate how BMW put cheap crap into a car that was sold for 30K+ dollars
