Is this a clip that needs to be reposition. any help in this matter would be appreciated

I had the same problem, it seems that there is a thin 2 or 3 cm long metal block towards the front of the roof mechansim that is connected to the part of the mechanism that pulls the rear down (a long thin metal strip runs from front to back connecting this block to the runner mech at the back) this block seems badly designed and had broken on both sides in my daughters Clio rendering the rear lift/drop mechanism useless (ie it wouldn't close) - I had to removed the sunroof and drill two holes in the rear of the cassette so I could push the rear runners forward and close the roof permanantly.
Now looking out for a replacement secondhand sunroof. Garage wanted 700 to replace it (she paid 1000 for the car!)
