2005 Mini Cooper S Convertible Cartridge Problem

Hi There! The passenger side of my 2005 Mini S Convertible stopped working back in April. It's stuck about 3 inches from the front top of the windshield where the top is supposed to close. I took it to the dealer and they wanted $2,600 to fix this. So I've been living with it. Then I found on You Tube how this guy repaired his on his own. I was able to disassemble the convertible top on my own, however the cardridge is completely stuck and won't slide back. I have a feeling it's not the cable that's disattached but the cartridge that slides back and forth is broken. Does anyone know where I can get the part and/or a manual to repair? I just can't afford the $2,600 at this time, since I lost my job right after I bought the car. Just my luck!
