The roof lifter motor is operated by a cable from the boot locking mechanism, this cable pulls the a clutch arm on the end of the long shaft on the lifting mech, if the cable adjustment is wrong the whole lifting mech will be extremely noisy because it's only partially engaged. Check and adjust this cable first , that's probably all it is

I'll try and do a video on this which will make it easier to explain.
