Headliner

In my OBS, i noticed the headline is starting to sag towards the back of the cab, do you just pull the screws out of the plastic trim around the headliner and pull it out or is there a special procedure to pull it out?

Secondly, is this the best way to fix it? (glue and put it back up) or is there a better way? and what type of glue do you use?

Thanks Guys!

Make sure you use the glue that is meant for headliners. It will hold up to the high temps. Also, if the headliner is already sagging, you can't just glue it back up. What happens is that the foam backing on the material is what is breaking down, not the glue. If you just glue it back up it will fail again. You need to replace the material completely. Make sure you clean off the headliner board of all old foam residue and your new headliner should last many years. Custom interiors are my business so if you need any more info just holler!

So you are suggesting I should get a new headliner for my truck (foam and red fabric together already) from Ford and then reglue it all onto the "framework" of the headliner?

I'd say the best way would be to order new headliner fabric and a can or two of glue. Remove the headliner from the truck and peel off the fabric. Use something like a stiff brush to remove the deteriorated foam from the headliner shell, then glue on the new fabric.

Don't get the fabric from Ford. Any Upholstery shop should be able to order it for you in a variety of colors. It comes with the cloth already bonded to a layer of foam. You can find it online too. Then just clean off the headliner board good and glue the new material on.
