one of my diesels sunroof is out of adjustment. when closed, the sunroof protudes about 1/4 inch higher than the rest of the top of the car. how do i adjust it make to level? also, i thought originally that my entire sunroof system was jacked. turns out i took the sunroof motor apart and noticed that was is happening is the worm screw on the motor shaft is slipping on the gear in the housing. it appears to be a fiber based gear as well. what are my repair options? i understand that i can always just open and close it manually.

Sorry I can't help you yet, mountain. The date with my moonroof still looms. After that, I may be able to chime in a bit...

The pics are from the FSM.
Has always been this way?
New to you car?
I don't think manual operation is an option.
Maybe the clutch needs adjusting.
Good luck, let us know how it goes.
