I discovered some interesting information about the sunroof today. It seems that there are three different ways to close the thing:
1) Normally, by turning the dial on the roof.
2) Exceptionally (meaning, over-riding the pinch protection feature), by turning the dial to the normal closed position, then pressing UP on the little dot on the sunroof dial when the dial is in the 'normally closed' position only
3) Manually, using a crank that is stored behind the rear cabin dome light.
The first method we all know about.
The second method, which overrides the pinch-protection, is described on page 56 of booklet 3.1.1. But, the booklet really does not make clear what 'position A' is. It is important that you rotate the sunroof dial to the normally closed position (with the dot on the dial at the front of the car) before you press up on the button. Only the front part of the dial will tilt up, so, put your finger on the forward end of the dial, not in the middle of it, then press up. As long as you hold the forward end of the dial pressed up, the sunroof will motor closes, and the pinch protection feature will not operate.
The third method is described on page 72 of booklet 3.2. This involves use of the manual cranking key that is stored in the roof. I have attached some photos below.

I think I posted these photos a few months ago, but I can't find them anymore - so, here they are again.
