You have to remove the hidden screws. There are 2 in the front, and 2 on each side. Realistically this is a 2 person job. One removing the screws and the other one inside the car in the back seat holding the sunroof.

Sounds like you may have a cable that is sticking or worn in a spot. You can call Jake Kelly at Kelly's Sunroof Parts in Michigan @ 1-888-298- 8140 and they can help you with parts.
