Sun roof will not close

I have a 1994 525it. It is my sin's first car. We are trying yo fix the little problems. Last night the front part of the double sun roof would not completely close. The inside liner will close but the top will not do the final drop. The motor gives a loud "clicking" sound and was a little loose when I took the panel off to investigate. I think it is a gearing problem. The book I have only shows the single panel sun roof which has a hex nut in the center of the motor to manually close in emergency. The double sun roof has only a screw in that position and it does not turn the motor. Any ideas on how to close it manually or thoughts on the motor problem? Thanks, Michael:dunno:
