Default Removing the Ceiling

A while back I had a problem with a leaking roof, and it turned out its possible one of the sunroof water hoses broke or came undone. I was going to open the roof and find out if this was indeed the problem, but I have no idea how to take the ceiling out, there are no screws or anything. Any suggestions.

This description is from my 1991 Olds FSM so your car should be somewhat similar.
It says to remove the following; Sunshades, Coat Hooks, Assist Straps, Interior Lamps, Fiber Optic Assembly Cover(if present), Shoulder Belt Trim Cover, Lower Lock Pillar Molding, Roof Inner Side Front Moulding, Upper Rear Quarter Trim Panel, Windshield Pillar Upper Garnish Molding. IMPORTANT! Headlining is secured to the roof by 5 to 6 patches of hook and loop material(i.e. Velcro). Carefully serarate in order to avoid tearing fiberglass substrate. Recline seatback if possible. Also position seat as far rearward as possible.

I guess they say that about the seats if you intend to remove the headliner from your car. Also, if you're removing the Headliner it says to go thru the Right Front Door. Oh, and it also says that you'll need a Trim Pad Remover
Good Luck.
