Sunroof problems

I have a 99 grand cherokee limited, the sunroof is in a bind and will not close all the way. Any suggestions or ideas to what I can do to try and get it to shut all the way? I can push up in the back of the sunroof to keep the wind from howling, so it seems like it will move.

Did you check for grease build up in the tracks? I've seen some that were never cleaned and it there was this semi-hardened mess of gunk that would prevent full operation.

You have a broken anchor point. Drop the headliner and you can just pop it back in i think. Mine does the same thing. Haven't bothered to fix it

Not fun or easy. All the handles have to come off, overhead console, visors, seatbelt top anchors, rear side trim pieces etc. Leave the console in place along with the rear top trim piece for last.

I got a new assembly and transferred all parts (glass, motor, etc.) to the new assembly in a day or so. I'll do a write up one day with my pics.
