The problem with most headliner is separation between the fabric and foam. I will have to do a lot of masking and trim removal. Thanks for well written, as opposed to video taped, instructions. Then carefully remove the old headliner from the fiberboard. I have now compiled a list of parts and am getting some quotes.
I have since gone car-less. The foam backing to the fabric failed - the glue was still holding a thin layer of foam fine. They did but the fabric trimming was actually worse on my new part! A soft paintbrush works quite well. Chitty, I couldn't quite see it from the pics but I went ahead and decided to try to fix this. Good luck finding one of those.
I didn't realise your in oz so me selling you some cream parts are out of the question, as postage out of this country is crazy. The headliner was hopeless, and everything I read pointed out that just gluing it back would not solve the problem previous owner had tried this, without success. Allow the adhesive to set and then move on to the next area. Likewise for pillar mounted airbags. Thanks again for the great post! A quart will cover one average sized headliner. So if you have lots of patience for threading and your headliner is perforated already and you don't mind a loose headliner when done, that will work. I will caution people that there are several types of hard headliner depending on vehicle make.
Why on Earth would they do this? Clay industrial plasticine and or digital models are developed from, and combined with the drawings. I called them but they refused so on the brightside I know it was done right I've seen some forum reports of headliners coming back with broken clips, rattles, and dirty handprints. I did this once on a 78 Chrysler. It slowly tears apart any vehicle that has anything more than bare plastic finishing. These are stations that I have never, ever had a single problem with reception. Why on Earth would they do this? I've waited to fix this issue because I am getting mixed ideas.
That is one system you don't want to screw around with. It was 33°C here the day before yesterday. After that, remove all of the covers for the A, B, and C pillars. Here there are 10 cool car interior decoration ideas that you shall wish to experiment with. The fiberglass ones are easy to wreck.
All headliners are able to be worked through the car and out the passenger door or out the lift gate. Did you have to remove foam from your headliner or was it ok to use as is? Thank you for the great advice and technique pointers! It takes a couple of hours start to finish but it isn't hard to do. The color isn't a perfect match but it's close enough. Follow the directions for your adhesive. But will save a lot of money. I presume removing the old foam from the head board would be a pretty big job - how does it affect the acoustics and overall squeekiness of the car?? There is still a thin layer of crumbly foam on the sun roof cover, as well as the under side of the fabric liner.
I'm in the process of using Dupli-color vinyl and fabric spray on my headliner for my 1962 Corvair. They looked at the car, and pulled some radio defect codes, and said that my radio was nearly failing. If you do take the headliner out, this is the time to replace the radio antenna base gasket. Just rip it out unless your doing Concours d elegance shows! Did you have to remove foam from your headliner or was it ok to use as is? It is not bent, like some have mentioned. . There are a few more steps if you have a sunroof but the basic procedure is the same.
The icon in the actual problem post, not the one in my sig. I was thinking about making a small hole in the fabric, and spraying adhesive in between the fabric and backer board. Do the same thing with the fiberboard getting good coverage on all areas. What a pain in the butt this was, plan for a full day of work. Do i need to replace the foam piece as well it's also quite degraded and crumbling?? There are more bits than you think altogether to do everything - I have interior monitors as well etc My grey headliner is actually starting to detach now. Many thanks for all the advice.
Also ensure you use a high quality 3M spray contact. If you do take the headliner out, this is the time to replace the radio antenna base gasket. Progressively, drawings that are more detailed are approved and executed by appropriate tiers of management. I'm sure I'm not the first Mk3 driver with this problem! I see you have black belts so I assume you can get this piece off to swap it? The horns at the rear make removal without extreme bending impossible. I haven't seen any fail at the sides. It takes 2 people minimum to perform this job right.
You pop the cap up from the bottom, then you push the clip bit off of the metal at the bottom. Hey Guys, I've had my 3 door 1. The Bentley service manual gives no hints on headliner removal so I had to figure it out myself so it took much longer. Now this is the sort of thing that, as an engineer, drives me nuts. I presume removing the old foam from the head board would be a pretty big job - how does it affect the acoustics and overall squeekiness of the car?? I ended up having an upholstry shop redo it and it looked very nice and not too expensive as I recall.
