WJ sunroof - will not open - off track

My sunroof will not open. I took to the stealership and they quoted me about $1100 to replace the motor.

The motor seems to work, but perhaps it is off the track?????? I hit the switch and it tries to move, but I just hear tons of clicks.

Not super important to open in the wintertime, but the glass does not seem to make a perfect seal and I am concerned with rain/snow getting in.

Thoughts?

Sounds like the gear is stripped.

So, if the gear is stripped, what should the repair bill be?
