The headliner in my little Nissan PU is coming loose and I have been just pushing/rubbing it back in place and now it is beginning to look like poopoo. It is nothing fancy and I don't want or need to spend a lot of money just on appearance.

Any Suggestions???

Or.....take the headliner board down, take off the old headliner, prep the board really well and glue on a new piece of headliner cloth. Headliner material is not expensive, so you'd basically have your labor in it. Check out this thread: CLICK HERE

Dear Dan, heeeeelllllppppp !
Well, I have procrastinated and gotten by with not doing the headliner so far but today the cloth started hanging down so much that it impaired my vision and the Wiff asked me why I had brown foamy dandruff (the backing falling down on my head and shoulders) :D :D

It's just a "Brand X" beater (but it's my beater) so I just ripped the cloth off and then I started trying to take the headliner down.

I have run into some problems that are really questions, I guess. The first one being - - - if you will look at this picture you will see the sunvisor retaining clip (there are two) that is still connected. I removed the phillipshead bolt and to my surprise it did not come off. There seems to be a slotted area around the hole where the phillipshead goes into and I'm sure there is a reason for the slot. Do you have any idea how I can get the clip off?

Secondly, the driver's side of the headliner seems to be held on by the window trim and door molding but the passenger's side has that including some snap in fasteners that I removed with no problem. Question: does the vinyl window and door trim just snap in place? There doesn't seem to be any exposed screws or fasteners holding them.

Finally the back of the headliner is held by the clothes hanger hook, some push in fasteners, the interior light and the window molding only. So that should be easy enuff to deal with going back together.

the A pillars in the front have plastic clips in them...put ur fingers in the top of the trim piece and give it a lil tug and the clips will pop out...the rubber trim around the door just comes off n goes back on real easy...the center section...slide the seatbelt all the way down...and like the front A pillar plastic put ur hands on the top of it and pull outward...you only need to take one side all the way out...and take just the top half of the other side loose so you can slide the headliner board behind the plastic to get it out...the sunvisor clip should come off if you put a pair of needle nose pliars on top of it and push it downward...on the side panels you might have to take the top part of the seatbelt off if the panels dont come down far enough....
