Mast Furling issues on a Beneteau 430

Top part of the slider part is stuck at the top of the mast. I pulled too hard when hoisting the main back on.(hard to slide it at the tack in the inside tube).
I climbed overthere and got the sail down by cutting it.

now i have to bring it down. any advice ? Did that happen to you ?

my first guess would be to attach a line to this piece (still got the shacke overthere) and pull on it like a crazy down vertically.

my second guess would be to have to pull off the top of the mast and hit from the top. But at 60f high, it sounds kind of crasy to me.

Any idea ?
