The sunroof on my 85 190e doesn't work, is that a common problem? Are there typicall solutions. I was looking at a different 190e and it had the same problem. What where might a guy check first?

what exactly doesn't work? Is it moving at all or is it getting stuck?

When I push the button for the sun roof there is no sounds and no motion. The fuses haven't been checked, but I plan to, I was interested in any known problems with the system, I looked at another car proior to purchasing this one and it also had a inoperative sun roof, so I thought there might be a reoccurring problem, which was hopefully easy to fix.
Thank for your time,

The problem is likely the switch contacts, if the fuse is OK. The motor is in the left trunkwell near the power antenna. Check the contacts with a meter while someone is operating the switch. If no voltage, pull the switch and meter that (check for power in). If the switch has voltage in, but the motor has none, you have found the least expensive problem. If the motor is getting power, but isn't moving, it's a bit pricier.
