sunroof is sticking open

My 97 318i power sunroof is ill. The tilt vent function make horrible noises and the roof has gotten stuck open. It looked like it was a little crooked and more horrible noises. I was able to close it manually.

My question is is ther a common theme to these sunroofs? Or a likely malfunction to look for?
