Exclamation Sunroof Wont Slide Open!

I need some help. I was wondering if anyone had a fix for this. My Sunroof will not slide back anymore. It only tilts. When I push the tilt button the sunroof motor starts to grind. Just like the tilting steering wheel. I wonder if I can fix it the same way I fixed the steering wheel tilt problem just like in CIP's DIY thread. I'll open up the motor and take a look but in the mean time I would like someone who has fixed this before to chime in with a solution. Thanks!

Yeah. I'd take it to the dealer but Im pretty sure its something I can fix myself. Plus its getting kind of hot over here in California and my AC is empty.

When I took apart my moonroof, I didn't see anything you can fix. Maybe try to hit up Aliga for the moonroof motor. It's cheap, and only takes 5 minutes to replace.
