Sunroof woes

All summer the roof has been fine, last night, i got to lower it as it was tilted up and it was raining. I looked up a few minutes later to notice it never went down. I had the stereo up loud so i hadn't noticed. I listened closely and when you hit the button the motor runs, I got it to go down, tried sliding it back, and it moves a smidge and then almost sounds like its "slipping" on the cable or something? it would probably go if i helped it but I dont want to get it stuck open so I didn't try.

Any ideas? Is it possible to get the headliner stuff off without taking the whole interior headliner out, or is that waht I'm going to have to do?

DON'T PULL THE SUNROOF!!! I had a similar problem with mine, so try this first. The grounds for the motor get corroded. The shop way is to pull the headliner off and replace the ground wires. A far easier fix is to make up too short leads, use in-line wire splices(the blue t-like connectors) and if memory serves me right, connect one end of them to pins 2 and 4 of the switch, and the other to one of the mounting bolts of the motor. Stakon-connectors make it a professional looking job.Worked fine for me, cost...about 25 kind of fix, and far less time consuming as well. Check with the wiring diagram for the ground connections, incas my memory is failing....)
