This usually is an indication that the sunroof cassette is rusting underneath the roof skin, the rust pushes a bar down onto the top of the sliding sunroof.

Try pushing up onto headlining from inside the car .  You may well feel/hear a crumbling which will indicate that the tray is starting to go. Has the roof started to show corrosion on the top side?

i did exactly the same with mine, no corrosion on the outer roof skin but feeling the headlining inside all was not well. I took the required steps to rectify, you might want to do the same before spending your hard earned on a paint job.

good luck.
