sunroof problemo

i need some help guys!
my sunroof is not working.
it can either stay closed, or go into the vent position.... it wont go back and open...

a few weeks ago, someone... threw some bic pens in my sunroof when it was on vent i guess... it wouldnt close so i checked it out, saw them, pulled all of the ones i could see out....

it was fine... now i cant open it.... i am guessing a pen cap might be stuck deep down where you cant see or something might be broken...


what shall i do?

please help me!$!@$!
