There is a great product out there called "Goof Off." Be sure to do a test in an area that wont be noticed to make sure it's safe on the surface you're working with.
When you are done be sure to use a damp cloth to remove the fluid and wipe dry immediately.
Depending upon the surface you could also try a piece of cotton fabric and a hot iron. IF the glue is on a smooth surface it should transfer to the cloth. Be careful and don't heat the surface too much.
You have to remove all the lights and columns that hold it up. Dome light, window moldings. clothing hooks, visers....etc. It will be glued on but if you are gentle then you can get it to peel off. usually not much glue. Just there to help. Once you free it you will have to recline the seats to manipulate it out. Once it is out you have to be careful removing the old fabric so you do as little damage as possible. You are going to break some of the edges but you can hot glue those back on. Stretch on the new fabric and replace. The best to use for adhering the new fabric is a couple of cans of spray on glue.
Probably not without damaging the fabric because these glues are so hard. 2 products I would try if you can get them where you are:
1. tea tree oil
2. Eucalyptus oil.
These will react with normal glues and break them down without harming the fabric or taking out any colour. I have not tried either of them with any of the super glues so I cannot say if it will be successful with such super tough products. I would also test them on another piece of similar fabric spotted with the glue before using them and that will tell you if they will work on the SG.
Other than that you would need to try various strong solvents to see if they would break down the glue and enable you to remove it. The problem is you may end up with a stain, loss of colour or some damage to the fabric if it is a sensitive fabric. If you test some of these on an old piece of similar fabric you have spotted with the glue you will be able to see which one worked without harming the fabric.
If you can buy a bottle of dry cleaning fluid (I cannot remember the technical name) you may be able to move it using a liberal amount of that product or just soaking the areas with the spots in the fluid. Be careful handling it as it is pretty toxic.
Applying steam (from a boiling kettle ) to areas of the fabric affected may soften the glue a little and enable you to roll it off the fabric if it is not heavily impregnated. Whilst this can work with some of the softer glues it may not with the SG. I would also test it first on another piece of fabric
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.
You need to take all of the hardware that holds the liner up. Take the liner out slowly ,not to damage it. You will have to remove the material and or sponge by hand.(do not peel layers)A good fabric shop will have replacement material. Bring a piece of the old fabric with you to match color of fabric.3M does make a headliner glue sold at a parts house to replace material. Measure liner from front to back ,not side to side. What I am saying is like from the rearview mirror to the back glass. Add at least a foot or two more to measurement. You will have to cut out holes for the hardware after you glue it down to the shell. You will also have to roll the material over the sides and glue the backsides. What I am saying about this is there is no molding where the shell meets the rearview mirror so roll it and glue it to the backside of shell , do the same for the back glass area of the shell. Use care when spraying glue not to get glue on the fabric. When you roll the fabric over and glue it you can hold the fabric down with a folded piece of cardboard held with clothes pins .Replace shell about 8 hrs later. Do not do this on a rainy day ,make sure it is sunny or hot day . Also when you spray the glue spray the shell and the sponge side with glue but do not over saturate the sponge or board that it would seep through the material. Good Luck!
Great question? if you can see the speaker then you will want a clear adhesive for sure if you cannot see the speaker then I would use Bear Glue it is the strongest you will need something good to hold it together during vibrations. I use this glue for everything. Let it dry for 24 hours before any use. A good way to do this is also use Bear Glue and a cloth cut it to fit the crack or split big enough to cover the wound. Place glue on the piece you cut carefully slip it behind the speaker and seal it from the back of the original fabric on the back side of the crack or the area. This will hide the fabric as well as give it a good solid seal. I hope this helps you. John
I had this same problem. I turned out to be the seal around the drum. You have to remove the drum and put in another seal. Not real hard to do. You can order the seal from sears and I think the glue came with it. Just have to remove the lint vent screws and then the top lifts off. then remove the screws to the front panel. Hold the drum because it will fall. Unhook the belt. Remember how it connects. Then take the drum off and remove the seal and as much leftover glue and fabric. Glue the new seal on and let dry. I did overnight. It should have directions. then replace everything. just make the seal is on the same way you took it off so look at everthing before you remove anything. Once the seal was replaced no more stains.
