I'm not sure if this would correct the problem but try taking out the fuse for the sunroof. Keep it out for about 5 minutes then plug it back in. That might reset the controls. You could also try disconnecting the battery and leaving it disconnected for 5 minutes. (This ensures that the computer chip will also reset everything to default.)
If you're not sure where the fuse is, look in the owner's manual. The fuses are usually located by the floor of the front passenger. The owner's manual will tell you which fuse is for the sunroof, sometimes it will have other electrical components going through the same fuse but that shouldn't matter.

I think here, by your description, that there might be something that has slipped inside the vent holes from outside. you can try to blow some compressed air through the vent holes at the bottom of the windscreen.
Otherwise you can try to look under the dash, activate the switch and see if you can locate from where the noise is coming and see if you can reach the mechanism that control the vent. Normally it must be moving free. Otherwise your local mechanic should be able to fix that ufor you.

one of three things. 1: the switch may be worn. 2: the motor (#9) may be shot. 3: the regulator (#8) may be jambed.
The easiest is to first test the switch, most likely it's good (being the passenger side). The door will have to be take apart to test the motor and check the regulator. also check the door glass has not come off the tracks (#4,#5) and check window tabs (#2) sometimes they break.
hope this helps

You need to either replace the motor or get a rebuild kit for the head unit. You remove the motor and take out 2 bolts in the head, use a flat blade screwdriver and hammer the pinched areas to get access to the inside gear. its a nylon gear and has 3 nylon runners inside. yours will prob be in pieces that are mixed with thick grease. best to clean all that out. the rebuild kit is pretty cheap or you can just cut a bolt into 3 similar sizes and drop them in the slots. (just remember the slip action the nylon is a safety feature in case you get your head or arm caught in the window as it closes) the metal pieces make it stronger and more dangerous. Put the head back together, pinch the metal tabs, put it all back on. Same solution will work on the door windows as well.
