I rented one of these a few years ago and the sunroof wouldn't open! The mechanics had to pull off panels in the headliner to get to the motor and drives. Also, the tracks that it mounts in need to be checked for alignment...good luck!

Are they not at the end of your dash on drivers side with door open. That's where my 95 was, but perhaps it's been moved?

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.

SOURCE: sunroof stuck

First off, you should leave it closed. At least you can drive it that way. The grinding could be the motor itself, or a gear inside that has rounded or broken teeth. Another possibility is that it has slipped out of a channel or track. Unless you're pretty handy this sounds like a professional repair job.

We would suggest isolating the wires that go to the sunroof motor and applying 12 volts and ground to verify that the motor is working properly. If it works in one direction, switch the wires to verify that it works in the other direction, fully closing and opening the sunroof. If the motor checks out okay, then the relay is your problem.
