Add me to the WD-40 lubrication fix.

2016 TH MySky was sluggish and eventually would not close. Tried the manual close method using a torx wrench, but could not get enough leverage. Eventually got it closed an inch at a time by pressing the button and releasing it each time it got stuck. Also had a helper pushing on it from the outside.

Then used WD-40 to lube the front an rear tracks (removed the rear panel to get better access to the rear). Now it operates as it should.

WD-40 is only going to be a short term fix. I would recommend some white lithium grease on the track for better long term function.
You may be right. I'm just relieved that it's not a mechanical issue and I can fix it myself.
From the looks of it, white lithium grease is what was there before.
