There is a cross member that distributes the force from the actuator cable. You will probably find that it is bent. It bends in the middle where the cable attaches ot it. They bend when the roof ages and the lubrication gets stiff and the friction goes up. I was able to straignten mine but it promptly bent again. I ended replacing the thing.
