Unhappy 2002 cruiser sunroof problem

Ok first off i was at work when my girlfriend told me that my big tv quit working. then on my way home i open my sunroof and i hear a loud POP and I know it is the sunroof now it will close but not all the way up to seal on the drivers side and it wont lift up at all. i did find a plastic peice in the track but have no clue what the thing looks like outside of the car and if anyone has a place i could see an exploded view of one it would be great and i can get it fixed and get me a new TV and all will be right with my world again (as soon as my 3d printer is back up and running lol)
Forgive the handle loved that car first and years ago

Sorry to hear that you had a bad day.
The bad news is your going to have to remove the sunroof to fix the plastic guides which come in pairs.
There is no way to manually close the sunroof once the plastic guide breaks and jams in the track.
Repair parts kit was $120 when I did mine last year. It can be done in a day as all necessary parts are included in the kit.

Sunroof repair or replacement is going to be your option.

Sunroof King sells kits around 100 bucks or you can look to find a replacement at a salvage yard. I bought mine last year for 89 bucks but didn't get around to installing it until this year.

The booger is dismantling the entire interior to get the sunroof out.
