Sunroof help

The Jeep's sunroof got stuck, luckily in the closed position. We last use it in July with no problems. It still opens in the tilt position, but it would not slide open.
I was thinking of squirting some Q20 into its innards while it is in the tilt position. I don't want to force it open by hand as I am afraid I can do more damage. Any ideas, or is it of to the dealers? We don't use it much, but I hate it when stuff is not working properly.

I now have this same issue. The tilt up feature works but the slide back operation does not work. I can hear the motor moving to slide it back, but the glass panel does not slide back.

It sounds like something has become unattached. Have you have progrsss in fixing this?
