I have to say, I'm impressed with your motivation to dig in.

I would try to find a hulk in a junk yard and gut that sunroof assembly out. I looked on eBay, too much $$. Re-lube it... DONE!!

I'm looking for my own personal hulk to gut, but nothing close to me.

Good luck

Default Preventive lubrication/maintenance

Are there words of wisdom for routine lubrication/maintenance to minimize the sunroof going belly-up ?

Default Under the heading of ANSWERING MY OWN QUESTION...

On a Mercedes forum, it was suggested that the sunroof rails be cleaned and a very thin coat of lithium grease be placed on the rails and that a dry spray lubricant be sprayed on a rag and applied to all rubber seals. Numerous Mercedes owners said this worked well. Any thoughts?
