sunroof problem

I've read through most of the sunroof threads I can find but haven't seen this one. Sunroof with auto close function drops below the roof line as the "default". When I turn the car off it closes, lines up with the roof like like you'd expect, but then drops down to this position. What in the world?

Is this the first time itís done this? My initial thought is the sunroof motor isnít aligned properly. Does it clunk as if falling into this position or does the motor force it into that spot?

Yes, this is a new occurrence as of today. I'd say it forces it down there like it thinks that's the right final position. Whole thing seems to be "shifted/tilted" as it doesn't open up to the full tilted position either. Almost like that whole section of the frame has dropped slightly or something.

To check the sunroof you would need to remove the headliner. Not hard just annoying, especially with winter around the corner. If itís not opening fully either Iíd suspect the cables may have gotten out of line with the motor. Iím honestly not sure how that could happen but I had a similar issue and it ended up the motor wasnt synced with where the cable needed to be resulting in it not fully closing
