1991 300te sunroff won't close......HELP

It's getting close to the rainy season here.

Sunroof is stuck in the open vent position.
Motor clicks but I don't here it running.

I just need to get it down for now. Physicly
assisting it does not help it move in either
direction.

This is a new (to me) car that I know nothing
of the history.

there is a way to crank it open and closed behind the left side cover in the cargo area, in front of the spare tire. If you have an owners manual, the tutorial should be in there.

I dont have a scanner or i would scan the page for you.
pull the cover off to access the spare tire and you will see a gear assembly stuffed up inside the quarter panel in front of the tire. you'll see a hole in the center where it looks like you could put a socket on a hex head.

Directions as per the manual:
Remove small access plug in left sidepanel of cargo area.
insert socket wrench (from tool kit) through opening in panel and place on teh hex drive of electric motor.
Turn socket wrench (manually) to open or close sunroof as desired
To slide the roof closed or to raise the roof at the rear: turn clockwise.
To slide the roof open or to lower the roof at the rear: turn counter clockwise.
