you have to first remove all the Plastic trim pieces around the head liner that hold it in place including grab handles or clothes hangers then it will come down easily, i recommend having an extra set of hands when you take it down so as not to damage it, then simply slide it out through the rear hatch. it is actually very easy to do.
The motor and module is in front of the moon roof window, under the headliner. You can pull the liner down to work on it, but be careful not to pull it so far that it breaks. If the cables are broke or really loose, you have to remove the liner. Replace the regulator. Most times it is the module. It can be replaced without removing the liner.
once the cloth has come loose from the foam your pretty much out of luck,, I took mine to a upholostery shop , but if your game and want to give it a shot,, check this out http://www.merkurencyclopedia.com/Interior/headliner.html
please take a moment to rate my research and response
This has happened to my wife's 2004 A4 Convertible 2x's. I had to read the owner's manual several times to get the job done correctly (pages in the high 70's to low 80's) ...the following is offered from memory:
The handle/tool needed to accomplish the task 'manually' is located in the fuse box on the LEFT SIDE of the dashboard. A small flat blade screwdriver will enable you to pry open the fuse cover & gain access to the handle/tool. Slight twist the tool and it comes out easily. Tool is a "T" shaped handle.
Once you have the handle/tool IN HAND, simply turn the RED part (only) on the handle until it 'locks' in an open position. Leaves a small space on the handle. Can't recall if you go clockwise or counterclockwise, but it will be evident.
Now...move both front seats forward and tilt them to gain access to rear seat. Remove the ski boot cover in middle of the rear seat and put aside. Then, 'click' the interior boot cover panel down to gain access to a 'hole' (about size of a 50 cent piece) in the top of the boot space. This hole allows you to insert (upward) the above mentioned tool into a lock/unlock mechanism in the rear deck just forward of the trunk. The tool needs to be jiggled to go 'all the way' in...you will sense that. Once in, TURN the RED part of the handle to "LOCK" the handle into the mechanism. The tool will hang down by itself.
My approach is to 'store' the roof in the open convertible position first. The front portion of the roof should be partially forward as that appears to 'release' a lever within the roof's up/down mechanism to allow you to raise the rear window portion. Thus, lift (with that friend) the rear window portion up and forward (takes some effort). The roof now has a kind of 'clamshell' appearance front & rear. The front may even flop forward but tht's OK. This step exposes the rear deck.
Twist the tool to unlock the rear deck. It should click & release and a small space appears enabling you to use hands (that friend again) under it (the deck). Lift the deck up & back until the hydraulics kick in and keep the deck vertically open.
Now you are ready to tackle the roof & rear window for storage under the rear deck cover. Get a friend, if possible to help with the lifting...remember, this is a "Manual" job! Once here, gently push back & lower the rear window portion of the roof into the open storage area simultaneously followed by the remainder of the roof itself. Watch fingers for possible pinching in the levers, etc., during this part of operation
Hopefully you now have the roof & rear window stored in the area in front of trunk and be able to lower the rear deck to almost closed position.
If so, go back to the tool and twist it to 'lock' the deck in place with roof stored.
Remove tool from the ski storage area by reversing procedure above.
Now comes the "Moment of Truth"!
With the ignition turned on and car running, use the roof switch to bring the stored roof up and all the way to the closed position. Don't forget you must keep your finger on that switch until the operation completely finishes.
Then, reverse the process to open & store the roof for a good blow dry (drive)!
The fabric has come loose from the backing and the backing has turned to dust. Get a good set of goggles and a breathing mask, rip the fabric away and scrape the dust off the backing with a wire brush. Vacuum up the mess and drive safely. Or you need to replace the head liner which does not cost all that much and is not all that hard to replace. You have to remove all the door moldings, and sun visors, any over head lights and the rear valise molding at the rear window. It's up to you, I have pulled many a fabric out and cleaned up the head liner, even painted a few. Instead of replacing the thing.
check fuses, when you turn on the rear wiper, can you hear it running, if so, sounds like the bolt has come loose or the teeth are sheared on the arm, remove the little plastic cover on the back and have a look. alternatively, if there is no sound, ensure the conection plug hasn't been unplugged accidently, I believe it is located behind one of the inside corner panels, there is another in the roof area, you will have to pull the rubber tubing/gromet out between the tailgate and the roof to check the connection. Good luck
Below are the removal procedures for your vehicle's front inner door panel.
On models without power windows, remove the snap ring retaining window crank handle. Remove crank handle and cover plate. Remove lower door frame bracket garnish. Using a screwdriver, remove inside door handle bezel. Remove power mirror control switch and disconnect harness connector. Remove armrest panel. Remove 6 screws. Pry interior door panel loose from door.
well in short , you dont. ther is a glue they sell at walmart you can buy to reattach it but you will have to take it out prb to do a good job. to have the head liner redone is about 60 bucks. Let me know MrRodneyLong@gmail.com
