Sagging Headliner

Post by elvin315 on 5/5/2012, 16:40

Anyone else? Just noticed the headliner in the backseat area is detaching from the ceiling. Is there anyway to fix this short of re-upholstery?

If youre looking for a quick fix, head to autozone, they have the clear headliner style pushpins. Or pull the cloth off some more and spray some headliner adhesive on it, but be careful its very tacky so you only get one shot to avoid wrinkles.

Took a while but I've decided on re-upholstry. The material is glued to a thin foam backing. It's not that the glue holding it to the head-board is losing its grip. The foam itself is crumbling into dust. New material is glued to the head-board after it's removed from the car, stripped of the old material, and scraped of foam residue. Cost: $215 material, labor, tax.

Quick Update:

It's been a month and the interior couldn't look any better. Saubiers in Hudson NY did the work and it's back to Cadillac showroom quality level. Better.
