Sunroof driver buried in tracks...help!


I am using Lincomatic's fantastic DIY to try and fix my stupid broken sunshade. http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...ht=sunroof+diy

But I'm having two issues:

1. Can't find the 'rear wiper cutout' on the passenger side. Can someone help me locate it? Otherwise, I can't figure out a way to get the wiper out

2. Also, my driver is buried wwwwwaaay back under the cavity. Once I get the wiper out, how do I pull that sucker forward (so that it can be positioned so that the driver sits between 1 and 2). I've tried pulling it with my fingers, but it ain't moving any farther than what's indicated here.....

Thanks in advance...

Jen who is trying to get this done before it starts raining
