Re: I replaced the headline recently and lost the parts...
The bolts at the end of the seat belts should be screwed into the mounting holes in the floor, which I believe are threaded at the ends, so u shouldn't need anything at the end of the bolt. Let me know if this is not correct.

You have to remove the headliner. Remove all the door column bezels and rear bezels, both sides. Remove the sun visors. Remove any dome lights and look for screws. Most headliners have plastic buttons and Velcro that hold them in place. Start in one place and work your way around to release the headliner. Being extremely careful. Because if you pull down to hard, you will crack the headliner, leaving a nice crease. Once the headliner is out, You can get to the sun roof regulator and motor.
big screwdriver and wrench them the covers are held in with plastic clips and they will break on pulling the covers thats for sure but the new clips are not expensive from a motor factror who now have a trico catalogue
You will have to remove the backseat. First the bottom part, it has two pull cords to release the seat. Take that out. Then for the back part, you will have to remove 4 nuts (2 with washer looking things attached and the ones holding the seatbelts) at the bottom of the seat. After removing them, where you had removed the seatbelt nuts, you will have to remove the seatbelt peices. Once that's done, you will have to pull the seat out and up. Behind that, there is 2 round button anchors, which you will have to pull out. Once those are removed, the whole back peice comes out, exposing the rear speakers. They should be 1/4 bolts holding the speakers in. And if you are modifying (not using stock speakers), you may have to cut they wires to replace the speakers.
Remove windshield and rear window to do it properly. Headliner is actually crimped in between window gaskets and roof edge. Not a job for the faint at heart. If you don't know the string trick to get your gaskets in place you'll be working on it this time next year. Look on CJ Pony parts web site. They used to have a good tech article on headliner replacement. Hope this helps...
Got it sorted out. The Hawks' headliner was already ****, but only on one side, and I was looking at the other side. So, I **** the material where the plastic was ****, **** the other side, and cut out the holes for the plastic insert. I was able to put the entire interior back together today. Now, onto reupholstering the seats!!
You will have to drop the rear section of the headliner. There are two 9/16's bolts that hold the assembly in place. The part that bolts to the floor of the car is held in place by a t-40 star bolt. There is an access panel on the back of the plastic boot that covers the seat belt. Open this, and you will see the bolt.
Just got my out. So, I thought I would tell everyone how to do this. First you have to remove the coat hooks, rear lights, handles and visors. My wife did these so thaey must be easy (just kidding babe). You don't have to remove the switches and lights up front. You will have to remove the wires later anyway. Now you have to remove the trim pieces at the A,B and C pillars. All these are attached with clips behind them. Use a long screwdriver (and cloth) to pry behind and loosen them. You will have to remove the seat belt on the B pillar. At this point you need to lay the back seats down and pop the three clips for the back speaker cover. Reach underneath and remove the wires. Slide the connectors off the clamp and unclip. This was a pain in the hands. Now the headliner is held on by a clip at the very back that I broke trying to get off. Also, there is velcro around the sunroof that you can use a long screwdriver to pry loose. At this point you unhook the wires for the front switches and it should be loose. Now comes the hard part. Bending the headliner to remove out the back door. I removed the neck support off th driver seat and moved all th way forward and up. I then really had to bend the headliner to remove. Lucky it is made out of a material the doesn't break easily. Good Luck.
