I can't figure out how to get the roller shade out of the bracket to re-roll it...

It is on the curbside of a 2007 Monaco Camelot. Any wisdom much appreciated. :-)

Doing this from memory, I think I had to dismount and unscrew end plate using end plate as a wind tab to cock spring. Probably a good idea so it doesn't jump off while in motion.

Was also surprised that the mount screws were barley tight. Good time to snug up opposite side.

If the brackets can't be sprung far enough apart to allow removal, then looks like you could remove or loosen the screws holding the bracket to the valance. Remove the end with the smaller, round pin, the one that doesn't have the spring. You should then be able to roll up the shade. Then install the shade and bracket back in place, when you pull the shade down it should wind up the spring to retract the shade. You might have to put a few turns into the spring when you remove it, depends on how much tension was released when it failed.

It would be easiest if you can remove the shade with screws only loosened, it will be easier to reinstall if the bracket is not completely removed.
