Unique sunroof problem

    Hi all,

    I had the fairly common sunroof problem that it would not close properly.
    So I went down the allen key route - to close it manually.
    However, the socket for the allen key had eroded away, and would not grip.
    So, I removed the motor, tapped in a fitting inside the allen key hole, replaced the motor and then tried to clos the sunroof manually.
    But it would not budge, my fitting works - so for the sake of argument the allen key approach now works - but the mechanism seems to be completely failing.
    I have removed all the hidliner (ceiling) from inside the car, and tried to push the sunroof forwards from tha back (it is 100% open at the moment)
    But the sunroof will not budge.
    I don't care if the sunroof every works again, I just want to close the damn thing and take the damn bing bag I have taped to my roof - off!

    Does anyone have any idea how I can close this? The headliner is still off and I can see and touch the sunroof, but cannot get it to move.

    Like I said - closed... I don't care if it works again.

    Please help!

    Thanks in advance
