Okay

So what you should be able to do is manually grab each awning arm and pull it out and the awning will come out which will allow you to get at the strap once the awning comes down, this will require a person on each side to pull the arms then grab the strap. The other way would be to go to the center of the roller tube with a ladder and manually move the tube until you can get at the strap, the awning strap should slide in a groove in the roller tube so once you can get to the strap you can re-center it on the tube.

IF you are still needing more help on this please send me a photo of the awning, you can add photos into your reply using the paper clip icon.

Hope this helps, IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a star rating on the page.
