Panoramic Sunroof won't open?

I have an 05 gt. I went to open the sunroof one day and heard a loud pop. The roof wouldn't open past the first panel. The first panel barely opens. It opens maybe an inch on the drivers side and 2 inches on the passenger side, so it looks completely uneven.

I want to take it to the dealership to get an estimate, but I was just wondering if anyone has had a problem with the panoramic and how much it cost? I have no idea how much it will cost to fix and if it's a thousand or more, I don't even want to bother with it.

So if anyone knows what the deal is, or the price range of repairs to these roofs I'd greatly appreciate it. The panoramic sunroof was the reason I chose this specific g6, so I'm completely devastated that it no longer works.

I'm having the same problem with my roof!!!!! its a little different though. one day i went to open it and it wouldn't open, so i thought it could be frozen, so i pushed up on the panels a little and parked it in my heated garage overnight. cam out the next morning and it still wouldn't open, so i messed around with the switch a little and it opened and got stuck open, then after pulling on it for hours and checking fuses and looking online i got it closed but now it wont open again!!!!! someone pleaseeeee help

If closed leave it closed, GM could never get it to work right, so not installed anymore.

I have a similar problem. It seems like the driver side doesn't want to go up but if I push on it it releases and the rest of the roof works but it also leaks are. I took it to the shop and they said that they come out of adjustment and that they charge $75 for the first hour and $110 for every hour after that. They also said that it takes awhile to adjust. My gf's family has a body and repair shop and she is checking on how to fix it so I don't spend and arm and a leg.

G6 panoramic roof stuck (FIXED) (F.U. DEALERSHIP)

well well well guys.... let me take it from the top. I got a 2005 pontiac g6 gt, loaded all the way out. Black, 17in chrome wheels, black decal eyelids, 10000K hids, tinted tails, decals, 5% tint n I got leather heated seats bla bla bla, dont get me wrong i love my car. But i do have the AWESOME panoramic roof. I love this sunroof. Best thing about the car i think... But as of yesterday my roof wouldnt close... i had it on 4, all the way open... i got a little upset because it was about to storm... Well today i had 3 different dealerships look at it. All of them said i need a new roof... WTF!?!? all of them said it would be between 1200.00 and 2100.00... whoa... talk about almost depleting my bank acct considering im a 21 year old male... BUT i took it home, as im somewhat mechanically inclined... i FIGURED out the problem!! It might be a fix for you guys as well... SOOOO if anyone would like to hear my theory and how i fixed it, it took me less than 5 mins to get mine working again... Although i still have the wind noise that wont go away... so if anyone would like to hear what i did, email me at GL guys!
