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?

Well this sounds no fun.. Who's betting I just won't have a sunroof for a year or two?
How about that, some working it back and forth and it works fine now. it would go back about halfway and stop dead like it was hitting something, and be strained at other times. i closed it 3/4 of the way , reached up in the tracks, and pulled out some plate of metal looks like from a bracket or something. now that it is out of the tracks it works fine. :) :dunno:

Hopefully that piece of metal wasn't from something important, but I"m not going to worrya bout that unless the unit doesnt work!

Gotta love easy fixes. :drink1:
