My Ford Explorer does this too. Almost knocked myself out getting in one time this winter since it had frozen and sagged low over the drivers door.
Typically this is because the drainage rails for the sunroof have gotten clogged. It's normally set up to handle a little leaking - the excess water flows down the back of the sunroof rails and into a tube that goes down the side of the car between the front and rear doors. It gets clogged with pollen ans such through the years.
Every car is set up differently, but it typically requires taking down the headliner and tracing the rails to find the hose, disconnecting it, and plowing it out with an air compressor.

How can I tighten the headliner


  1. Have the headliner replaced by a professional.
  2. Use thumbtacks to hold the headliner in place.
  3. If there is a rip or tear in the headliner, you can spray adhesive in the rip or tear in all directions and attempt to re-adhere the headliner. Also, the headliner will need to be held in place while the glue drives.
  4. Sometimes a meat marinade injector can be used to squirt glue between the headliner and the roof of the car, but that will make a small hole. It might also need to be repeated in multiple locations. Also, the headliner will need to be held in place while the glue drives.

There is water leaking inside above my passenger side door when it rains pretty hard?


is the water leak allowing the water to wick up into the headliner or is the headliner getting wet without water coming past the weather stripping around the door?

If it is wicking then fix the weather stripping.
If the water is getting headliner wet with out passing the weather stripping then you have a leaking sun roof.

You can the door seal by sitting in the car while you have some spray water (garden hose) gentle at the frontal and upper door seal.
If not leak there inspect seal of sun roof and real seal with correct type of sealant.

How to remove the headliner and install it


Hello,

When Your head liner starts to sag or You have another nice headliner You want to use in replacing Your old liner, it is actually a good thing. Removing and installing a new one is also a easy task and does not require any form of technicality to do this. Please get these instruments(Replacement headliner fabric, Spray glue adhesive, Screwdriver, Sandpaper, Scissors) and follow the steps below:
  1. Remove everything that bolts into the headliner like visors, lights and coat hooks. These things are normally bolted to the ceiling through the headliner, making it impossible to remove the headliner with these things in place.
  2. Take down the old headliner. You can grab it through the dome light hole or one of the other holes now showing. Be careful not to rip or bend the headliner. Slowly move it towards the rear of the car. You may have to remove some of the molding along the sides of the headliner.
  3. Carefully take the headliner out through a door of the car. You may have to maneuver the headliner around the seats and steering wheel to get it out of a door. Be careful not to bend the headliner.
  4. Peel the fabric off of the shell of the headliner. It should easily come off by pulling it with your hands. Use some sandpaper to remove any foam that remains on the headliner shell.
  5. Lay the new fabric on the headliner in the correct position. Fold half of it back so the shell is visible.
  6. Spray the adhesive glue on the visible side of the shell and on the underside of the fabric. Allow it to set until it has dried some.
  7. Fold the fabric over slowly onto the shell. Smooth out any wrinkles as you go. Work your way to the outer corners of the shell.
  8. Repeat the gluing procedure for the other half of the shell and fabric. Make sure to smooth out any wrinkles so the fabric doesn't completely dry this way.
  9. Trim the left over fabric to 1/4 of an inch long. This will be hidden behind the molding of the car.
  10. Install the headliner using the opposite steps you took to remove it. Slide it back into place, replace the molding and then the visors, lights and coat hooks
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Headliner Replacement


You'll need to remove all the plastic trim around the headliner and the plastic clips holding the headliner up. There are a few places on the internet to get replacement headliner material.

My sunroof leaked and now i have water in my roof how do i get it out


You can drop the headliner and drill some small holes on the inside to drain it. Youll never know they are there once the headliner is back in. Just an idea

My headliner is sagging, I have solved the water issue but now I need to repair the headliner. Short of replacing it at the dealer $$$ are there alternatives??


They do sell a headliner adhesive at your local parts stores. It can be a bit of a pain to do inside of the vehicle, but can be done. Just follow the directions on the spray can.

Wet Headliner


You likely have a water leak around the 3rd brake light mounted on the top rear of the cab. I had this same issue on my 96 Ranger Supercab and found that the foam seal had gone bad and was allowing water to leak into the back of the headliner around the light fixture. It ended up soaking the headliner from one side to the other as the headliner acts as a 'wick'. You can repair this issue by either replacing the sealant around the 3rd brake light or replacing the brake light. There are two screws which secure the 3rd brake light assembly to the back of the cab. Remove these and it will pop right out. I upgraded mine to an LED light when I replaced it. That solved two issues at once as I'll never need to change a bulb there again. If you want to be cheaper you can not replace the light and just seal it with rubber silicone sealer.
