Question about 2001 Volvo V70
There should be a slot you can put a flat head screwdriver in to turn the motor round and close the roof. the motor assembly there is a magnet inside and a reader to tell the motor when to stop or move. the sensor can fail and ope till it cannot move any more it also as a water trigger. this in the event that the vehicle is under water the sunroof opens so you can get out. this feature can go wrong a well.

to find out if it is off its track you can remove the cover between the rearview and the sunroof that is the motor/drive assembly. there is a slotted pin in this assemply that you turn with a screwdriver to move the sunroof manually if it wont move manually then you have a bigger issue. sometimes thie drive assembly screws get loose, i believe there are two screws that hold it up,when those are loose you will get a grinding sound when the gears skip. good luck.

SOURCE: Sunroof leak
You could change the gasket surrounding the sunroof Others have tried to seal the worn out gasket with epoxy. Here's a page from the Volvo forum I found that should help. If you want to replace the gasket yourself, it's not a difficult process.

Just an FYI. If you hold down the Unlock button on your keyfob for the MKZ (not sure about othr Lincolns) for about 5 seconds (not sure exactly) or more the sunroof and windows will open. I believe this is designed as a cool down convenience feature. Not sure if that was the case, but you may have tripped that feature without knowing it. Still, it is embarrassing that the dealer didn't at least mention this possibility to you.

Tips for a great answer:
To check the condition of your original sunroof guides:
- Gl*** in closed position.
- Locate & remove 3 torx bolts on each side of sunroof glass. Lift glass out of sunroof opening & set aside in a safe place.
- Locate "J" shaped cover plate at front of sunroof track assembly. Remove 2 torx bolts from each cover plate.
- Lift up bracket to remove.
- Inspect the plastic guides on each side. The sunroof cables attach to guides on front outer corner. Inspect this area closely for damage.
- Do not operate the sunroof with the J plates removed.Troubleshooting:If the sunroof guides are not broken & the glass is a uniform height along the rear edge your problem may be a stripped gear inside the motor. The motor has a manual override:
- Get access to the motor by removing the map light/switch console or lowering the front of the headliner.
- Insert a large standard screwdriver into the nylon bushing at the center of the motor hub. Push up & turn the screwdriver to manually move the sunroof glass. If the unit will fully open & close manually, you most likely only need a replacement motor.
If your sunroof is stuck in the open position follow these steps to get it closed:
- Remove the glass.
- Try to close the unit without the glass. Many times one side will still be operational and close correctly.
- Try to slide the inoperable lift arm forward. If it moves, slide it forward until it stops.
- You now need to slide the original plastic guide forward to lower the arm to the closed position. Using a standard screwdriver, push it forward. The lift arm should begin to lower.
- If the lift arm will still not fully lower, remove the J plate as explained above, sometimes the sunroof cable will need to be lifted up to allow the guide to fully slide forward.
- Reinstall glass.
