Is it only trying to move on one side when you hit the switch?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

No I dont think so.

Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 8 months ago.

But it does try to move, or you hear the motor trying to run when you push the button?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Yes it moves slightly. Seems hung up.

Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 8 months ago.

Is this something you want to try to fix yourself, or are you just trying to get it closed until you can get to the repair shop with it?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Either/or. Closed is #1 right now.

Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 8 months ago.

It's tough, there's not a way to manually close this roof panel. You say you tried pushing and pulling on it, if you "help" it in the closed direction while pushing the close button, can you get it to move at all?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Not so far. Would I pull it or push ir?

Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 8 months ago.

I would try either or, anything to get it moving in the closed direction.

If it truly won't go, there's not a way to manually close it, so hopefully it's not raining where you are and you can get it over to the dealership today to see if they can address it for you.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Unfortunately no time today

Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 8 months ago.

Understood.

Read through this bulletin and see if you can get any of these steps to work for you. No promises, but it might wake it up and get it going again.
