I think I need a new sunroof cassette?

Symptoms, and probably diagnosis, is simple...

sunroof goes up and down normally.
No issues with the shade; clips were replaced at some point

hit the button to slide the sunroof back (open), goes about halfway, twists and jams. try to close? fails a couple of times, then closes fully.

I've seen a couple of small chips in the guide rails.

So I need a new sunroof cassette, right? I mean, there aren't any other options here, right?

How about some opinions on the sanity of putting in a junkyard part -- stupid, it'll be nearly worn out too, or fine, they usually don't ever break... ?
