Default Sunroof problem 2001

Hello guys!I recently bought a pt cruiser touring edition 2001 really good condition!The only problem is that the sunroof is going only up and down,not back!So like that i cant enjoy having a sunroof!When i press the A button it goes back 1 inch and then stops!I dont hear any motor working,but i dont think is broken cause its moving even 1 inch!Then i press again the V button and i close the sunroof!
So do you have any suggestions?I read other threads here about sunroof problems but i couldnt find any solution!
Please i would like your help!
Thank you

P.S. Sorry for my English im from Montreal

Did you try giving the sunroof a little help going open with one hand as you hit the button with your other hand?

I have the same issue with mine and found a plastic piece that I guess from the track that broke off. I tried helping it move back but it didn't work. I sometimes just tilt it up but probably should just leave it closed til I fix it. If the sunroof moves at all then I would think it's not the motor so it's the track which is a grand to fix if done at a shop. Would be nice to find a video or something on how to replace the track. Guess I need to look harder.

Check this out Sunroof assembly
I have repaired mine with the kit. It wasn't that hard. Be careful when pulling out the headliner the wires for the lights are glued to it. I just pulled them off the headliner and then hot glued them back on when i was done. Definately easier with two people. One to hold it up, and one to unscrew the screws. The whole assembly will come down in one piece (not that heavy), then just replace the pieces in the assembly with the new ones and reassemble. Good Luck!
