Sound of plastic snapping while closing sunroof

'80 300SD. Was closing the sunroof yesterday just before a majhor rainstorm and heard a large snap sound from the sunroof. This was followed by the roof siezing and a loud clicking noise coming from the trunk. Roof had maybe another 2 inches to close. After trying reverse - forward, etc. a few times, I was able to pull the roof closed while the motor kept clicking in the trunk. Haven't been able to check this problem yet cause its still raining and will be tomorrow too. Got any ideas what plastic would crack up in the roof? Searched the archives and cant find this exact problem. Can anyone suggest something?

Thanks Bert - NH
