Sunroof won't close

Try to close my sunroof today and it close 3/4 of the way and then it stop. Try to close it all the way but my left side of the roof won't not move at all but it move side to side when I push the button either way. Any idea of what's wring with it?

Check the tracks if broken replace. If not lubricate. Is the motor making any clicking noises ? Also check the sun shade clips replace if broken

Yes the motor is working I can't get it to close so I can remove the glass part to check the track

Take off the panel the button is located on. You'll see the motor. Take an allen wrench and you can wind the sunroof shut manually. Then tilt it and the six torx bolts will be visible for removal(3 on each side)
