    Sagging Headliner

    Anyone else? Just noticed the headliner in the backseat area is detaching from the ceiling. Is there anyway to fix this short of re-upholstery?

    Just a guess, probably you can pull it out and respray it with some headliner/carpet glue. You can get them from any auto parts store....thanks. Also, they have different strength on the glue.

    No it will never look good and refall very soon drop the head liner and have it redone if you do all the labor it would only cost you 100.00

    The car is rarely outside and sleeps in a garage. I think it happened last year during a lengthy license suspension. Could have been the heat and humidity in the garage that did it. As for the drains........ maybe but wouldn't I see water stains? I guess I'll find out when I get to taking the liner down. probably in the Fall. Too many other projects to do first.

    And that's why trying to glue it back up would look like crap. Without the foam, the material would be lumpy, since it would be stuck to the uneven spray adhesive. Plus there would be a divot anywhere that the foam had deteriorated. Also, the glue would saturate and darken/stain the material if applied directly to it.
