Exclamation 2006 Spectra weird sunroof issue

So I just bought a 2006 Kia Spectra5 and since the sun decided to come out for a bit opened up the sunroof. Somehow the main glass portion managed to go up and over the metal retaining pins on the inner shade and is now stuck behind it (Of course this happened as it began to rain). I cannot close the sunroof all the way now because once the shade hits the front the glass remains stuck behind those retainer pins on top, just behind the wind screen so there is still enough of an opening for water to get through if it rains too hard. I have tried as hard as possible to get the thing back in the right position but im afraid if i push or pull on something too hard i risk too much damage to it. Has anyone else experienced this on their Spectra? If so, or if anyone knows of a way to work around it in a similar case please let me know. Because of where the glass stops I dont believe i would be able to remove it either so I am mainly wondering if there is a way to remove the shade without removing glass, or at least removing the retainers. thanks in advance.
