Most the time if you can't close it due to broken sun roof gear guide they brake at ends and will not close it open all way to repair is big job sun roof guide shave to come out and headliner Partial removed new sun roof gudes cost $650 for parts labor is Around 300-400 for job like that

uh....I guess I should have been more specific in my question....I know the thing is broken...is there a way to manually close the glass....Your answer is totally unclear as to cost...is it 650 or 3-400 or 650 plus the 3-400??"Not close it open all the way"? What the heck does that mean? The glass moves all the way back but does not close all the way...how can I get it shut to keep rain out until I can fix it properly??

You can't close manually or open it manually is bad design only way to close to replace now sun roof guides . To that you must pull down headliner then complete sun roof assembly will get dropped down that you will replace take glass out and replace sun roof guides gears assembly's those parts cost $650. Just a part . Labor to pay someone ranges from volvo dealer 300-400 here in Chicago we charge $400 to install that job . Sorry for the misspellings the system types wrong thru voice comands it gets sent to me at work so I have to call talk to you reply

I am fairly mechanically inclined ..... does the sunshade and sun roof glass come out from the inside of the car or from the outside of the car?

I'd like to take it apart to see if I can fix it

First buy the parts or you can't close . You remove sun roof glass from top then you can slide the sun roof shade out then you have inside parts exposed but like I said all parts are coming in assembly I would get parts first
