Had the headliners replace and now the dome light does not work and then the ac went out along with turning signal, is the dome light not grounded?

check for power and ground at the dome light. if one is missing you will have to check it out. if you hired someone to put the headliners in then go back and have them check it out. is the bulb still good or in the socket.

How do i replace the sunroof track on my 2001 jeep grand cherroke limited? the bracket that the air deflector attaches to is broken.

You have to remove the headliner. Remove all the door column bezels and rear bezels, both sides. Remove the sun visors. Remove any dome lights and look for screws. Most headliners have plastic buttons and Velcro that hold them in place. Start in one place and work your way around to release the headliner. Being extremely careful. Because if you pull down to hard, you will crack the headliner, leaving a nice crease. Once the headliner is out, You can get to the sun roof regulator and motor.

Remove headlight 07 pontiac G6?

If your talking about a dome light bulb. You don't have to remove the headliner. Look at the lens where the bulb goes. You will see a small slot on one of the side of it. Insert a screw driver and pry down on it and it will pop off. Same with side lights in the headliner.

I don't know for sure but some cars have a "DOME OVERRIDE" button usually somewhere the light switch on the dash. Not seeing your car the dome covers mostly require only slight pressure on either of the longer sides to remove, press against the side and at the same time pull downward.

How do i get to the dome light for repair?

The plastic dome lights generally just 'clip' into the headliner (maybe a couple screws). If you removed the clear plastic lens, there may be a couple screws holding it in as well. If you are just replacing a bulb removing the clear plastic lens will be sufficient as you can then remove the old bulb and replace it. A how to on how to do this should be in the owners manual.

Hope this helps.

Can't figure out how to remove dome light to put in new headliner.

Remove the lens if there are no visible screws then use a flat screw driver to try and pop it out working the screwdriver in between the lens and the lens frame. Once that is done there should be a couple screws visible that hold the lens frame in place

How do i remove dome light's from 1992 pontiac grand am so i take headliner down and replace it with new headliner

You will need to take the plastic cover off the dome light. You will find screws that will need to be removed. Once removed dome light should come down. Disconnect wires.
