Sounds like the sunroof motor is out of time. Needs to be re-timed. There is a retime procedure, (that I would try first) but I don't remember the whole procedure. if you still have the problem, let me know and i will get the whole thing , from the service manual.

The thump means the motor is good The linkage between the motor and the sunroof got either disconnected or broke off because it is a plastic link. you will need to remove the sunroof liner and find where the linkage is broken and replace. if you do it yourself maybe it will cost just a few bucks if you take it in they will charge you a minimum of $250.00

Yes it would be perfectly ok to disegauge the auto switch to keep it from moving again. It needs a tilt motor replaced . not a easy job.

remove the light console, remove the sunroof motor.( 2 screws and unplug the electronics). ...open up the motor by removing 4 screws,lift out the electronic board .remove the clip that holds the gear in place.
remove the round metal disk, reinsert the motor in its place and using a pair of pliers turn the gear countercolckwise, this will lower the roof
