Headliner removal

I'm trying to trace a leak in my sunroof down. HOw do you do you remove the headliner from an 02 CrewCab?
I've already got all the handles, visors, lights, body moldings, weather stripping and all that stuff off. It's just the headliner left to remove.
Are they glue in?
Thanks

Before I ruin a $600 headliner I'd like to hear from someone who's taken theirs out before.

It just pops out. It's easiest if you take out the passenger seat and wiggle it out that way. It's a kind of a pain to do but if you take your time and be patient you can get it out without putting any creases in it.

My truck had an aftermarket sunroof put in and I think they may have glued it in ?!? When I try to gently pull it down a little you can hear it. Almost sounds like a tearing sound or a velcro sound

Just tried it again.

It did pop down fairly easily around the edges. They had just used a little glue to tack it. No problem.

The problem I do have is this...It looks like they took a factory headliner and cut it all up to fit the sunroof in there. They installed the cardboard of the headliner using self tappers into the truck body. It was then re-upholstered in place with a new piece of fabric. So I can't remove it without stripping the skin or fabric off of it to get to the screws.....beautiful.....

I guess I'm gonna price out somebody who can re-upholster it in place for me. It's now got lots of greasy fingerprints all over it and it's starting to look like my old caprice classic back in the day with the sagging headliner.

Anybody got any other ideas?
