Since you did not state year or model, I am assuming more than 5 years old. Try to get it open then apply some lubricant onto the aluminum slide rails. Silicon spray or maybe even vasalene lightly applied with a small brush. Light oil on hinges if it has a sort of wind delflector. Maybe I am completely off base but usually its a lube issue that starts the problem. More info would be helpful.
