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.

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.

Need to replace sunroof glass. I have a used glass panel. How difficult is the process?


Not very at all, if you are patient, and careful with the headliner--- you must be careful with the goopy grease on the mechanism while you're in the truck getting the old glass out and the new one in. Get your torx bits ready, and some upholstery adhesive in case it's needed. The only hard part is taking out the headliner and putting it back in! Be sure to check the operation and seating from outside, as you may have to do some fine adjustment once it is in- test operation a couple of times before you re-install the headliner- and don't forget to use hand cleaner before you go back with the headliner!

1989 delta 88 royale 4 dr sedan; the headliner is sagging, this car has never been wrecked and has only 40000 miles onit


Best bet would be an auto upholstery shop. The dealers can work on them, but I would go with the guy with everyday experience. In the worst case, if you had to replace the headliner, you could have a choice of fabrics and colors.
If anyone can fix your old one they can.

1997 SL Saturn Headliner Removel


search google for the saturn fourms they had detailed instructions with pics . The short answer is all plastic trim around the top or doors from the windshield to the back window. The top of the dash needs to come off too It just pops off pretty easy . all clips you can see when the trim is pulled back a bit from the bottom and use a screwdriver to pry the clip out or it will break . you need a star wrench set to remove the setbelt bolts. the passenger handle is a pain I cant remember that one .
