This website shows it has manuals and online diagrams like that. Sometimes a dealer parts guy will run you a copy of a parts diagram. It is a 13 year old vehicle- a salvage yard may have something torn apart that you could see.

SOURCE: sunroof will not close
If the motor is stuck, you can probably hold the switch to the forward position, and smack the roof. This may allow the motor to start working. I don't think there is any way to do it manually.

The roof slides along a channel actuated by a coiled cord.
Both of the cords pass along a gear attached to the Sunroof motor which pulles the cord tooth by tooth.
There are two plastic wedges that drop into the plastic slides on the sunroof (the plastic slides are behind the more forward metal slides.)
The plastic slides control the tilt of the roof when moved independantly. The plastic wedges join them.
If the roof moves too far back, it is possible for the wedges to stick up and jam the roof open.
This should never happen, but could if the two micro switches on the sunroof motor assy fail to provide feedback to the controller indicating the roofs position.
Access to the Sunroof motor requires you to drop the headliner.
To drop the headliner, the plastic pillar shrouds need to be removed front and back, the seatbelt bolts in the middle secion need to be removed, the oh-**** handle, the front visors, and cabin lights.
3 bolts hold the motor up.
With the motor down you can try* to manually actuate the cords using a flat screwdriver, but move the left and right side evenly a tooth at a time.
Of course of the plastic wedges are jammed, it's not going to budge.
Hope the info is helpful. good luck!

SOURCE: 99 malibu sunroof stuck open.
The motor is in the front area of the roof unit.If you can drop the switch and trim around the front of sunroof unit and headliner ,you can can access the sunroof drive motor.The drive shaft of the motor can be turned mannually with an allen wrench which will assist in closing and identifying the problem area.If its hung very badly ...remove the sunroof motor then push the roof closed.

in the trunk on the drivers side there is a plastic bolt to turn, in your tool kit should be a socket thing that should fit it to turn it.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I see it. It has a hex head but not a very high profile. Do you turn it clockwise or counterclockwise to close it? Thanks a lot!"
