Re: how to adjust sun roof
There should be a dip switch inside frame that stops motor and it could be bent or someone could have closed roof on something and skipped the gears. Try opening it some and then hold it while opening a bit more.

all sun roofs.
1: check fuses
2: check voltage at roof motor. (active.) ( if no 12vdc hot wire the motor , does it close now? if no 12vdc the switch(relay) is bad.
3: remove trim and check the mechanism for jamming.
4: remove motor and try to move the drive , by hand, if you can it will close, if you can't, its jammed. if jammed find cause of jam.

On my 2004 Sebring 4 dr sedan under the front of headliner is the motor for sun roof it has a slot for a metric allen wrench. You can manually crank sun roof closed. Last week I had to do this to my car.
Does the sun roof do anything whebn you press the button. if not, check your fuses and the sun roof switch. If fuses are good you want to check to see if the sun roof motor is getting power. If it is getting power it could be the motor itself. If it tries to move but can't then you have a mechanical problem. it might be binding so try giving it an assist by pushing on it when pressing the switch.
I was lucky, the owners manual was still with the car and it addressed this problem. Tells you to remove the cover for the controls to the sun roof. Then remove the screw plug that is located in the forward left side of the control box hole (Need big screw driver to break it lose). Then remove the slug surounding the inner adjustment screw, being careful not to lose any shims or washers. Trun the adjustment screw counter clock wise to close the sunroof down and clock wise to shut the sunroof from the open position.
Looks like the motor is shoot. To prevent this from happening again I disconnected the white with black strip wire to the control pad and unsulated the lead. It can easiely be hooked back up in the future if the motor is replaced.
Good luck all!
The motor is stripped out. The sun roof might be binding on the sun roof track and the motor is not strong enough to move the roof. I would first replace the sun roof motor if available seperately.
You mihgt have to get the complete assembly because of part availability
