there is no FACTORY method of manually closing this sunroof, you will need to pull the headliner down and remove the motor to manually ATTEMPT to close the glass fully, there is no guarantee you will be able to push the glass closed, though, these were a old design sunroof and the only thing we used to be able to replace was the entire unit, glass and motor assembly.
