Headliner issue ..... What the $&@)?!?!?!?!

Anybody on here have their headliner start to fall? I know these cars are getting aged but my headliner starting to take a *****. Most the time the car stays in the garage but I left it out for 3 days. It was a little hot but hell I've left it out longer in hotter weather... Kinda disappointed.

Mine is peeling back behind both of the visors. I tried adhesive spray and it didn't work. Its disappointing. What sucks too is that's only of the interior problems that have recently started. Exterior too

I got the adhesive spray at the auto store. It worked fine. You have to apply a good bit. Not just a spritz and a poke. You need a lot of it to really get a good tack. (Not so much that it's frikken dripping)... hehe

Mine was falling in the back driver's side corner. You gotta give it a chance to get a little tacky. You don't just spray and press. When it's wet on the fabric, it's basically like water.

I sprayed some in there, and blew on it a bit... Then sprayed a little more... and more air... Then I gently worked it in... It takes some time. It's not spray, press, and done.....

~$150-$250 to redo the headliner.

Mine was more than that, and I did a bunch more parts. It depends on the material you use and who does the work. Like most things in life, you get what you pay for.

Yeah that headliner glue you have to spray it, wait for it to tack up then press it. Just a shame I would have thought it would last longer. I had a 03 Monte that sat outside everyday of its life and the headliner stayed up. But Thses cars and there black interior they get hot fast. And I have tinted windows. Looks like I'll be pulling the headliner and working on that.

I'd definitely agree with you there.... As far as I'm concerned, I'd pay for the quality.

It'll be sometime before I personally redo the upholstery in mine, but it IS starting to show its age..
