theres a way to close it by taking off the panel above that covers the motor and putting a allen wrench into the middle of the motor unit and turning it i think clockwise. If the gears are stripped it wont work...but if its just the motor then manually turning the gear should close it. I figured out which way it needed to be turned to close then put a allen attachment on my cordless drill and made it easier cause it will take awhile
caution if it opens you may not be able to close it again, this sounds like the track broke or something in the motor. lets hope its the motor as if its the track then the whole track needs to be replaced, there is no repairing a broken sunroof track.
I have built oem sunroofs for 20 years and if it was jerking to close you may have something in the track interfearing with the closing, but more than likely there is something broke. There is alot of plastic parts. No over-ride on an oem roof. The only obstacle in a motor replacement is make sure your lifter arms (the parts that the glass attaches to) are in the closed positon. This is called timing. You can help the motor along with a light pull or push to take some strain of the motor.
My best bet is its your Sliding roof drive gear sub-assembly. I would also check your sliding roof control switch and you wiring harness. In fact i would check those those first since they are the fastest to check and then that only leaves your sub assembly. you will need to remove your headliner to test everything. And you will need a volt meter that you can get for a couple bucks at most electrical stores. use your volt meter to make sure your getting the same amount of to power to your switch as your getting just past it when it is closed. then test the wiring closest to your motor with the switch closed and there a very minimal amount of volts lost. If everything checks out i would go with the sub assembly. Hope this helps.
there is a manual way to close it. between the rearview mirror and the sunroof there is a plastic box remove the two screws holding this on and remove. then with a flat tip screwdriver depress the white plastic clutchpinin the center of the motor screw.(this should be towards the rear of the area).turn this white plastic pin to open or close your sun roof. i hope this helps.
