Remove the side panels next to the windshield on each side.
The ceiling panels are held up by clips. Carefully pull till they release. If there are sunvisors, unbolt them and move them out of the way. This will give you acess to the sunroof area.

Are you sure it needs a motor? I hope someone checked it out as it is an expensive guess.
