145 sunroof motor

It's one of those jobs I keep putting off.
The sunroof opens but doesn't close (without using the manual winding key)
How easy/expensive is it to replace the motor?

Oh dear! Bet thats a bugger when it starts to rain all of a sudden.
I had heard this to be a problem with 155's. It was said to stick in the rear open position. I've been lucky with mine (I keep using it regardless of weather just to make sure it stays this way....touch some wood quickly!!)
Are you sure its the motor? does it tilt up and down o.k?

The sunroof opens OK but when you switch it to close all you hear it a loud clicking noise. It sounds like a gear cog is not engaging properly and the teeth are grating. I will have to take it to my usual garage Alfashop in Norwich and see what they can do. Can't put it off much longer because I need to sell it before my lovely new 147 arrives (counting the days...)
