Headliner removal:

1) Remove the sun visors and the mounting clips. I believe they take a TORX (star shaped) screw driver bit to unscrew.

2) Remove the rear view mirror. Just tug near the base until the mirror assembly pops off. The base will be left behind on the roof. Unscrew the base.

3) Remove rear plastic roof trim and interior light. Pop the cover off of the interior light and remove the screw that holes it in place. Unplug and remove the light assembly. Tug on the rear roof panel until it pops off.

4) Remove the plastic push clips from 3 places on the headliner. 2 are at the rear under wear the plastic roof panel was. The other is up front under where the rear view mirror base was.

5) Remove sunroof "fuzzy" trim. Pull off the velvet-like trim around the sunroof opening.

6) Remove the a-pillar plastic trim on the driver's side.

7) Pop out the plastic panel at the top rear of the driver's side door. It doesn't need to be removed...just popped out a bit so that you have some room to work.

8) Gently slide the headliner panel out. Be very careful. Do not force it, or you will get permanent creases in the vinyl. If it is stuck, you may need to remove the passenger's side a-pillar trim as well to remove it safely. Also, sometimes if you've had your windshield replaced, the black trim at the front of the headliner will be stuck to the windshield sealant. If this is the case, gently break it free by sliding a razor blade between the glass and the black trim piece on the front of the headliner. The headliner is delicate, so make sure you do this when you aren't in a rush. You want to take your time with it.

As for your other question, you can get replacement motors from the wreckers or from honda. However, often, the only problem with the motor is that the brushes inside the motor have worn out. Sometimes you can get it repaired at a small motor repair shop for a fraction of the cost of a new motor. It's worth looking into.

I have no idea if other motors are compatible with the CRX sunroof. Your best bet to test this theory would be to obtain one from a wrecker and check for compatibility.
