Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Depending on the year of your Cruiser there may be a way to manually close the sunroof without removing the motor. On my 2004 there is a place for a square drive socket to be inserted and then you can move the sunroof forward or back. This still entails removing the headliner. I guess you could just drop the back half or so if you were careful. The other problem is that if any of the sliding pieces that move the glass are broken then the glass most likely won't lift up into the fully closed position. It will go all the forward, but not raise up at the rear. Another problem can be trash and dirt in the slide areas. Make sure these are clean and I lightly lubricate mine with white grease just to help things slide easier. In my research the motor and switch rarely go bad. It's the plastic and pot metal slides that break and need to be replaced. For that the entire sunroof must come out. Not too tricky for someone mechanically inclined but if you can't do your own brakes, tuneups, and say replacing a water pump you should probably leave it to someone else.

THERE IS NO MANUAL CRANK, U WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE MOTOR DRIVE AND CLOSE THE TOP, THEN REINSTALL THE MOTOR.
