Falling headliner, how to fix it?

My headliner is starting to fall off (the fabric)
How can I fix this before it gets worse ? Is there any type of glue or something that won't make it look like a*s ?
Thanks.

Falling Headliner

Have had the same problem. Prior owner had somehow splashed some ?coffee in a couple of small areas that I noted when cleaning up. Couldn't see it unless you were up cleaning. Upholstery cleaner took off the stain but dissolved that rather weak glue holding the headliner on. I got a syringe and fine needle and squirted small drops of elmers glue through the cloth in a 1" by 1" pattern, and made a brace to hold a pillow with wax paper on it up against the headliner. If you look you can see some of the spots of glue, but I just don't look. Small spots of glue are the key, too much and it soaks through. You can always go back and add some more if there is a droopy spot. Good luck. If you find a better way please post, just incase my cure fails after a while.

If you can peel it back, 3M makes some good spray adhesives that might work for you. Cheers!

Thanks. I will try the needle trick. I don't really need a perfect job. It's a 520k KM truck.

getting it out is the toughest. take it out and peel the old stuff off. its the foam between the colored fabric and the glue that rots away. peel it off, sand it down and put new fabric on. I do this for a living, interior work, not that difficult at all.
