Headliner for 1999 Buick LeSabre does not have a cardboard backing. What do I need to do to replace this headliner myself?


What kind of backing DOES it have. The fabric of the headliner cannot simply be glued to the roof frame. GM used a foam shell on many of its vehicles. Removal of the headliner must be done carefully to avoid breakage of the shell, although a small crack or two often is of no significance. Remove the old fabric by peeling it off the shell. This will usually leave a lot of the foam padding still clinging to the hard foam shell. This can be removed fairly easy with a vegetable brush, being careful not to gouge into the hard foam shell. There will still be a slight residue of the padding on the shell, but this is not a problem. At a fabric center, purchase a sufficient size piece of headliner fabric in a color that complements your interior. Ask the salesperson there to assist you in selecting the correct spray adhesive for the job. Dry fit the new headliner to the shell, leaving some extra on all sides that will be trimmed later. Fold back one half of the headliner fabric and apply the adhesive to both the shell and the back of the headliner fabric. Wait the specified time for the adhesive to prep, then, with assistance (its easier), roll the headliner back to the shell, ensuring no gaps or bubbles. Once you complete one half, fold back the other half and repeat. Cut any access holes needed (dome light, sun visor). Trim excess to edge of shell. Do not wrap the headliner around the side edges or it will not reinstall correctly. You may need to wrap the front and rear edges depending upon the trim on your interior. The edges will be hidden by the door and window trim. Reinstall shell.

Why is my 2005 Kia Rio overheating on a 3 hr. trip??


Low fluid level? Radiator clogged? Fan not running? AC condenser fan not running? Thermostat not opening all the way? Water pump ok?

Headliner on my sunroof has fallen down. It is a 2009 Lincoln MKX. How do I fix it?


You will need to remove the entire headliner, being careful not to crack the foam it is constructed. You will need to remove all the plastic door pillar covers, any clothes hangers, the dome light, etc.
You can purchase headliner fabric and adhesive at most fabric stores. The personnel there will assist you in getting the correct adhesive. You must remove all the old headliner fabric and backing pad material to get to the foam core for installation of the new headliner fabric. Lay out the fabric and cut it to size, allowing for some overlap in case you err slightly when positioning it. You will apply the adhesive to the foam core and to the back of the headliner fabric. It is a contact-type cement. Carefully position the fabric over the foam core and work from the center out to position it, being careful not to trap wrinkles or to stretch the fabric excessively. Trim off the excess and reinstall headliner.

Headliner how to clean


I would call and ask a detail specialist that does it often so you don't use the wrong product or cleaning method without causing damage to the material. Some products will stain and leave a residue where applied so test an area that is inconspicuous and only use a small amount and a microfiber cloth with cold or lukewarm water and gently rub the stained area to release the material then let dry. Good luck!

2005 Kia amanti trunk wont open fuse is good


Kia in their infinite wisdom put a trunk lid on/off switch in the passenger side glove box. I had this problem and it was just the switch turned off.

I have water leaking on the right rear floor passenger side


Sounds to me like your issue is with condensation from your air conditioner. The condensation isn't properly draining, probably from a damaged or clogged drain hose.

Leaking Fluid


I'd also assume that it's from your AC/defroster. Condensation will continue to drip even after the AC/car has been shut off. It may also be condensation coming from your exhaust tailpipe. Both of these are normal and thought it's only water, it may pick up contaminants and therefore cause a stain.

In general, don't rely on your gauges/idiot lights to tell you when you're low on fluids, because they usually won't alert you until there's already a problem. Check your oil and coolant levels, and your tire's air pressure occasionally (every 3 months), more often if you suspect a problem.

If you don't have the know-how or inclination, to do this, most quick oil-change places check all this and more for you at no additional cost.

If it's really bothering you and your car is still under warranty, you may want to try the dealership.
