    I was driving home today and decided to open my sunroof. After a cracking
    sound that it usually makes (I can make a digital video for anyone if they'd
    like) the drivers side became stuck, wont open or close.

    I know SC2's are problematic with having headliners and sunroofs leak.

    Should I pony up the cash to replace it? Scour a salvage yard for
    (hopefully) the parts I need to give me another good 10 months?

    Sorry for the obscure post. Later on today I'll post pictures, and maybe a
    video link to show what happens when attempting to open and then re-close
    the sunroof.
    The loud cracking (actually, sounds more like a plastic gear skipping or
    jumping) coming from near where the button is. I have yet to aquire
    directions nor time (weekend is coming up soon!) to remove the headliner and
    inspect whatever and attempt to figure out how it works, and what is wrong.

    Does the skipping sound repeated if you keep opening? If so, your
    sunroof cable and motor gear worn and you ne to replace them. You could
    start with a set of cable if doing it your self. if that doesn't solve
    the problem, you need a new motor as well. Motor and cables replacement
    are common problems on SC sunroof.

    They are relatively easy to change.

    Yes, the sounds repeat. As its a rainy day and I've gotten most of my shit
    done I might actually get around to posting that video I mentioned :p
