Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
My headliner is shot, JCwhitney has a replacement, but I'm not sure how to get the old one out. Anyone know where I can find removal steps?
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.
