    How do you clean a dirty headliner?

    Does anyone know? It seems very delicate and mine hangs over the back seat, more or less depending on the weather. I tried cleaning the shield that covers the sunroof and the fabric just wore away and you can see the foam-y part now

    sounds like it just needs to be replaced. it isnt that expensive either, i think it cost me 80 bucks IIRC (for my Fleetwood).

    YOu are correct, the material in most headliners is really delicate. When I clean them I use a horse hair brush (really soft and sensative) with just a mist of water. For a stain, I spray a small amount of all purpose on the brush (be sure not to over do it) and clean. if the material is fraing, its time to replace. gary

    It's really dirty. I don't think I could clean it. How does it look replaced? I don't want those seams though.

    you have stock interior right? have a fabric shop that sell for vehicles match your interior and then have them reupholster it. it looks good and the people who did mine made it look stock, like there was nothing ever wrong with it. good luck, oh i forgot to mention, the people that did mine were friends of the family, so prices may be higher. good luck!
