My 17 year old daughter has a 1990 240 DL. The sun roof was cranked open and when trying to close it , it got to about 2 inches or so from being closed and then stopped. The handle will not go around anymore. Any advice on how to correct this problem would be appreciated.
Kindest regards.

You can try removing the handle and working the cables to get it closed and then reinstall the handle.Some times one cable will jump and throw it all out of time.

remove the crank handle (1 screw) and the crank gear (2 screws). push the sunroof back to the full open position. wind the gear back to back (open) all the way till it stops and than foward 1 turn. re-install gear and handle and it should work.
