Is there something that has to be aligned on this?!
Am_ver - Check the plastic tracks / guides that the sunshade runs along. I replaced my springs a while back (2006 A6 Quattro) and recently noticed that my sunshade seemed to be hanging as well. After getting back in there I saw that the guides (also plastic) had cracked and separated so one side of the sunshade was coming off of the track and not sliding freely anymore. They were a little tricky to get in and I had to remove the sunshade completely to replace them. Its a tight squeeze to get your hand in there to work with them.

I ordered the parts from Jim Ellis Audi online and they shipped them to me pretty fast. The guides are part 9A in the diagram at
