CLK320 98' Sunroof Problem

Hello I'm new to this site and was hoping I would be able to get some help with a sunroof issue I am having. My sunroof works fine as far as the motor is concerned. The issue I am having is with the part of the sunroof that you have to move by yourself with your hands (for the life of me can't find out what this part is called anywhere) anyways this part of my sunroof is stuck making it impossible to open my sunroof more then a couple of inches because of this part being offset. This part is stuck pretty badly that I can no longer move it with my hands and I'm afraid of forcing it back into place and making things worse. Has anyone else had this same issue and if so can you please help me?

I think you have a W208 chassis, repost in that subforum on this site for more qualified answers. Don't force it, you can cause costly damage to the plastic parts within the rails, that part is often called the "shade" and probably jammed due to failure to lube the rails on a regular basis. Buy some Plastilube or similar, even MB makes a sunroof grease but it's costly but can be bought in smaller sizes on eBay, to avoid this again once you get it fixed.
