C-230 Kompressor Panorama roof stuck

My C-230 Kompressor hatchback has a stuck panorama roof...it stuck half-way open and took a Herculean effort to close, stripping the allen-type fitting.

I've greased the rails constantly and they seem properly aligned. I also checked all fuses and they're fine.

Could a motor gear tooth be busted? Or, perhaps, the roof motor itself is toast.

I've had the 03 Kompressor since new (150K mi) and have cycled the roof hundreds, if not a few thousand times

mucho appreciate any assist on this one.

I would check the relay for the motor or a fuse for a start. Do you hear the motor?
