Visiting family about 200 miles to closet VW dealer. The sunroof went on the blink it started with what sounds like a pinch condition. I cleaned it tried it again it went forward then back again. Tried it again this time it stuck almost closed but about 1/8 opening in the back it wouldn't slide up. So I tried the manual option and it seemed stuck. Any ideas to close it until I get it home? Thought about removing the headliner to look at the mechanism but from reading that might not be easy especially when the roof won't go-to the vent position to remove the glass.

Have you tried pressing the close button while another person gently presses on the sunroof?

Got a stuck one on a Pontiac to at least close that way until it could be looked at further.

Sounds mechanical rather than electrical. You could wind it open manually and then look for any obstruction and lube the rails and moving parts.

Then wind it closed or until you feel resistance.
