Exclamation Problems with the sunroof!!!! Please help!

Hi I have a 1999 Saab 9-5, recently the sunroof has stopped working, it tilts up but does not open when i try to slide it back and something clicks and the mechanism does not open the roof at all, please tell me how I can open it up and replace the mechanism or what might be causing the glass not to slide back and that clicking sound

Thank you so much

That happened to me, I might have gotten lucky though.... Compare both sides of the sliding mechanism and see if something is not symmetrical. I did this and noticed the small metal clip on one side of the sliding mechanism was bent up, which prevented it from sliding. It was a tiny piece but prevented the whole thing from working. One little tap with a screwdriver and it was all set. Good luck and hopefully it's something small like that.
