Use a heat gun to heat {not toast} and this will soften the glue, be careful with your hands because that hot glue makes you scream if you get it on you, you can use a paint thinner to disolve the left over foam as long as the backing board is timber and NOT plastic. if your going to recover it, use an abrasive paper to scour it for a really good bond. Good luck

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.

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.

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!!!

How do I replace the headliner in a Cadillac Sedan DeVille 1992 model


You could probably take the side closest to the sagging down and spray the ceiling with adhesive and then press it back up. That would probably be the cheapest bet. An auto detailing shop might also be able to do it for you if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself.


The headliners in these cars all come down sooner or later. The headliner in my 1979 Sedan deVille is finally starting to come loose and I'm dreading doing a replacement because my Burnished Gold interior color will likely be challenging to match correctly. The headliner fabric comes loose because the fabric is glued to thin foam. The foam disintegrates over time and the fabric comes loose as a result. Gluing the existing headliner fabric back to the old broken down foam underneath will never correct the problem. The only way to fix it is to remove the old headliner and replace with a new one.


Check here this procedure guide (as reference): tutorials/cadillac-fleetwood

Hope helps.

How munch for a head line


Headliner you mean? Do it yourself. You can buy the thin foam underpad, & spray adhesive on it, then material chosen from a fabric shop. Scrape old stuff off good, spray adhesive on cardboard like headliner, apply foam, then spray foam good, and apply fabric, let it cure overnight, wrap material around to back side, and put back in place. Follow directions on adhesive, and make sure it's o.k. (compatible) on foam & material.

Headliner


I have a base model Nissan pickup of the same year, hopefully the headliner is basically the same. It's a molded board piece that forms the structure that the foam and fabric are adhered to. To remove it, take down the sun visors and the dome light. The plastic trim pieces on the windshield pillars also have to come down (I think, it's been 18 months since I replaced mine). Also a couple of plastic buttons over the rear window. Once those are off you should be able to remove the headliner and maneuver it out of the vehicle. Clean the old headliner off as thoroughly as you can. You should be able to do a web search for the method of replacing the headliner material, basically you use contact cement. I got my replacement headliner material at Jo-Ann Fabrics, it was pretty cheap. Good luck.
