Question Need sunroof help.

87 300SDL. I have read the manual I have on CD and it's not much help.
The sunroof motor runs fwd and reverse and stops at either end but the roof does not move. I have a new cable because I am guessing the end that connects to the roof is broken because I can hear it move when I run the motor.
Now the problem: The manual says I need to have the sunroof half way open to remove the headliner. OK that makes sense but I can't move it..... The only thing I can do is push up on the back of it which will raise the back of it about an inch or two but that's it. It won't move backwards at all.
So how do I get it to open enough to get the headliner out? Is there some trick or secret gadget?
