w108 sunroof doesn't fully close

Hey every one. I have had this issue since purchase. My sunroof on the w108 opens and closes ok, but when it comes to the fully closed position the rear of the sunroof doesn't pop up into place. It seals out water and air, but does not look correct. What do I adjust guides/stop/spring?
One more question, What is involved in greasing the cable. I have heard mention of it, but not seen any how to's or step by step directions
Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Does sunroof motor continue to run if you hold switch in closing position?

To get batter look at things and clean and lube remove liner. Open sunroof about half way, using plastic wedge carefully unclip 6 clips at leading edge and pull forward and out trough opening.
