ok im going to try it all out now.......and for what the buttons on my sunroof controllers say dat are right next to the driver visor and to the left of the map lights. first button vertically down is to open second button is press left vent and right to completly open and the third button says asc and it lets u choose wether to close the sunroof when the car is off or when you turn the car off the sunroof closes automaticaly. and really not sure the owner before did not tell me anything about the car when i bought it. so not sure if its aftermarket or not. its a 1992 SE

That is an aftermarket sunroof for many reasons.

We can't be sure of any drains at this point. You'll need to find any that may exist.

ok i found the drain by the front wheel and noticed water falling down the drain. so i kept puring water on the sunroof and noticed where it dripped from out a plastic pan looking thing. my theory on this sunroof is if water gets in thru the sunroof it falls into this pan and drains out somehow but the pan has two cracks in it and im pretty sure there is another in the back of it. so instructions on how to take the celing down would be great guys.... to inspect more closely

remove the A, B & C pillar trims
remove the visors
remove the sunroof trim ring
remove the oh **** handles

at this point the headliner is only held in by the velco straps and the door weatherstriping. if you work it around the headliner you shouldnt have to remove the weatherstriping.

might be better to remove the front seats to be able to get the headliner out without creasing it. you will probably get it out one of the rear doors. you will have to bent it slightly, be careful.

if you don't want to remove the seats and the headliner you can still drop it and inspect, but it will be in your way, a lot.

ooops, forgot all about those.

there are 2 tabs on the front on, and 2 tabs and the hook on the rear ones. the tabs are behind the handle

use a pliers to pull them straight out.

50% chance of breaking them, they get very brittle.
