Call up any Ford dealer's parts counter and they'll find the motor location in a jiffy in the parts book.

There should also be a way to manually close the roof. Ask about it also when you question your Ford dealer.

If it's and after market moonroof the motor is usually in the back. Some are inside the unit in the back and you have to drop the whole thing. A few are in the front but rarely since space is limited up there. The ones with exposed motors have a place to insert a tool and manually crank it closed. Wish I could help you more but I haven't worked on moonroofs since the 80's. When the motor is in the back we had to drop the headliner and drop the rear of the moonroof to get to the motor. It's a real PITA. You're better off taking it to a trim shop that does moonroofs and letting them look at it. Also if it's a aftermarket there is an inline fuse somewhere near the switch.

Thumbs up

True, the owner's manual should have the manual close procedure, forgot about that.

(My cars have T-tops. LOL)
