280CE Sunroof

The electric sunroof on my W123 280CE is very difficult to operate. It will only work when it has been sat in the sun and you give it some serious manual assistance.

It probably just needs lubricating but I have no idea how to go about this, any ideas?

I also have an 85 280CE which requires a sunroof service but have not yet dared take it to bits. I am sure they will need lubricating and a motor service after so long but my manual does not cover this.
Any information on how to service the sunroof would be most welcome.
