2003 Subaru Forester XS 4 Cyl 2.5L

Body & Interior

My sunroof opens when the closed button is pressed, locks in the open position until nudged, then closes 2" at a time?

Hi, my 2003 Subaru Forester's Moonroof has started acting up recently. Today I pushed to closed button (it was already closed but I heard some wind noise, and I was just checking all the windows) and instead of staying closed, it opens. It opened normally, to the 22" stop point. Then, when I tried to close it, it backed up to the full-open position and would not close, I pushed gently on the front, and it closed, however it closes about 2" at a time and I have to repeatedly press the close button. While all of this is occurring, the motor is whining and seems to be going slower, much more than when it was opening. I checked for a blockage of leaves or something and found none. Any ideas?
