Sunroof cable, what the he@%!

I have installed a replacement sunroof motor in my 88 560 SEL. I had to pull the cable out through the sunroof to install the guide tube to the motor. Now I cannot get the cable to feed through the motor. It will not push through because it seems to be hitting against something. I cannot feed it through using the motor because it will not engage the gear.

I did have the motor and cable working together, however to install the guide tube I had to pull the cable back out of the motor. Now I am driving around with this project half done. Has anyone had experience replacing the cable or the motor who can help?
