Default sunroof problem

Got in my car the other day first nice day in awhile went to open my sunroof only to hear a loud grinding noise so I got out and inspected it. what seems to be happening is that only one side is rising up while the other does not move at all. It can't be the motor because the one side is still moving it looks as if nothing is jammed in the other side to stop its movement. So I am guessing maybe the actuator?????(which would suck since only the motor is covered under warranty) Anyone have any ideas on where to go from here or had a similar problem??

...not sure Why only the motor is covered under warranty?,......the sunroof should operate as designed....and if it doesn't,regardless if the motor is at fault or the track/mechanism is at fault,it should be fixed under warranty!,.......I'd say it'* time to start Banging your fist down on the Service Desk

well i was right the actuator seems to be the problem with my sunroof not the motor i looked it up on gmpartsdirect and it looks to be about $125 i was thinking about maybe doing it myself but i am not sure about how to go about taking the head liner out so i can have a look at it anyone ever done this before??? or am i getting in over my head ??? should i just suck it up and have someone else fix it?
