I have a 450slc with the electric sunroof What every manuel says is how to fix the sunroof AFTER its open,but thats just the problem.I cant get it open to start with!I think it may be that the tracks that the roof slides on are rusted but when i push the switch the motor only runs in the closed position.Can any one tell me how to get it open or do I need a new motor for it?

It might just be a bad switch. I'd pull the switch and test it before tearing the car apart. If it is like the window switches the sunroof switch will be repairable.

Well if it is like the window switch, there is a toggle inside the switch and just because it works one way doesn't mean it will worth the other. The window switches use little copper tabs in them and if they don't make contact the window won't either open or close depending on which side the tabs became misaligned. That is my guess, if the motor works I think it is just a bad switch.
