I also have a similar problem on my `85 4000 CS Quattro (95K miles): the 
motor seems to have gotten weaker and weaker.  Now, in order to get the
sunroof to close, I have to hold the little wind spoiler down, otherwise 
the motor can't handle it.  Is this to be expected at this age and mileage?  
Is a new motor inevitable?
