Those sunroofs will do that- drive you mad- think about how complicated that mechanism must be- and how smart the mechanic must be who attempts to fix it- if you find someone who CAN fix it, shower him with gold and affix his name to the monument of Teutonic Titans- anything to keep from getting rained on- doesn't it make plain old solid roofs look good?

Someone has advised to slide all setting to full close and then manually adjust using the alan key. This "should" put it all back in sync - Worth a try
