i broke my sunroof

Well my sunroof started to get really slow when i was shutting it. i finally shut it by pulling it and pushing the rear end up. But while i was doing this i broke one of the arms on the passenger side. this is the part that pushes the roof up. it is cast aluminum

I will try and take a pic.. i wonder how hard it will be to change this part.. ?

Guy, u should of used the large spark plug key(fits perfectly) from the tool kit to loosen the sunroof motor(to disengage the power)and with the special allen key manually turn the sunroof to close or pop up......i'll need to see the broken arms piece......Try a salvage yard......for the sunroof pieces... remember this sunroofs can be openned manually ....again with the large spark plug and allen key provided in the tool kit....
