Question Awning Bar Cap removal?

I want to remove the white plastic light holder track. How do I get it out? I removed a screw on the roll bar and the end cap still wouldn't budge. If the cap would come off, the track would slide out. Any ideas?

Is there enough clearance if you remove the motor cover?
How about if you index the track/holder to the outside? ( in your photo it's at the bottom)
There looks to be way less plastic cover there.

CAUTION !!!!!!!

The end cap on the awning is spring loaded and I mean a "BIG" spring.

Be very careful.

Like a garage door... Sometimes better left to the professionals or someone else who has already been smacked with the spring g releasing..

I will try turning the roller. This is a manual awning, not electric.

It will still have a spring. That is how it retracts.

Check the cap on the other end. When I went to add a screen I had the same issue. Then I looked at the cap on the other end. It has a little different design and I was able to rotate the bar and the screen slid right in.
