Espace mk4 sunroof - how do you change the motor?

I'm on my second Grand Espace.

When I bought this one the sunroof worked perfectly apart from being a little 'clicky' when the blind was closing / opening.

Now however the sunroof has stopped working properly - the blond is stuck and the roof itself will no longer open. When I press the control button to reset there is a loud clicking noise from above the control.

It sounds as if the motor is not engaging properly?

Does anyone tell how to get access to the motor so that I can fix or replace it - alternatively does anyone know what is actually happening and what the solution is?

Many thanks in advance for your help.
