1997 e class mercedes sunroof problem

My 1997 Mercedes e class sunroof would not open using the electric switch, so i opened it using the manual option.after using the tilt option i then tried the slide option and then the tilt option this time the electric motor came to life but to my disappointment the sunroof would only close on the left hand side of the car making a clicking noise when it got stuck,i got the same result when i tried to close it manually.

In the driver's side trunk along the wheel well and behind the wheel well cover you will find the sunroof motor. There is a plastic knob that can be turned to close/open the roof manually. The socket tool is part of the original toolkit that came with the car, but otherwise, you can locate one that will fit. Don't use pliers as the plastic easily breaks. Meanwhile, have you looked at the fuse or toggled the switch hard to work? If the motor works, but doesn't move there is an adjutment on the motor's clutch that can be tightened. Hope this helps.
