Question Sunroof up on one side and down on the other

Have searched all the sunroof threads on this site to solve this problem. I have removed the motor and tried to push down on high side to equalize cables and they will not budge. Does anyone in this forum know how to correct this misalignment? Vehicle is a 2007 E550 with 90K. Sure don't want to have dealer correct it at $3K. I did have the machine gun noise when it came to a stop in this crooked position. Motor is out at this point. Help!

Pano or standard tilt/slide?

Guess I don't know the difference. It tilts at the rear of the glass and slides as well. It has a sunroof glass over the rear seating area which does not open but the front glass slides over it. It has shades which deploy with over front and rear glass. Hope that Identifies which it is.

More reading and it turns out that this has the Pano roof. Not mine, but I am selling it for a friend.

Unhappy NO SURPRISE HERE!

While another helpful member is assisting me off line I thought I would share another unhelpful experience with my local MBZ dealer. I was informed that the failed rubber grommets which secure the motor to the track assembly with the three T-25 screws are available only with the motor! That friendly price was only $425 which did include the screws however. Nothing they could do about that complete rip-off I was told. In fact the parts guy said sometimes MBZ doesn't help their DIY customers much and this is one of those times!

Here is the motor with strengthening screw I added to keep it from flexing, the original cause of the misalignment. And only one of the infamous grommets still intact. Looks like I'll have to fashion the remaining 2 myself...
