Hey their golf55555,


Remove your visors torx head screws,2 on the visor & 1 Phillips head on the catch. Unscrew the handles in the headliner but not all the way, there are round plastic catches behind liner. Remove all door pillar post A,B, &C posts. Unplug any electrical connections, Overhead console, Illuminated visors. No need to disconnect dome light in middle of headliner because that is wired and plugged in up front in A pillars. Watch how B pillars are removed because you have to replace them,they're tricky because of the seatbelt adjuster and the weatherstripping. The pillar post have 1 or 2 metal tanged inserts that have to be removed from the metal pillar behind pillar post, they can be squeezed together when pulled out.Remove rear seats and tilt passenger seat flat and drivers seat back. Remove plastic cover by speakers and along top of liner in rear. There are 2 plastic buttons that have to be taken out up in th rear ceiling. Get someone to help remove the headliner by tilting to the passenger side and pulling out the back.Might not be a bad idea to wear throw away plastic gloves so you keep the headliner clean.

Hopefully that will help you on it. To re-install just reverse the order and that ought to do it. I wish you the best of luck and hope you find the source of your noise and resolve everything without too much problem. Should you have anymore questions on it, please let me know, and I am always more than happy to try to help out wherever I can anytime.

This was discussed thoroughly YESTERDAY. Go to our interior section and look into the forth thread down intitled "Roof Fabric".

Hey their golf55555,

Never a problem, and yep, I just updated the List and you are now on there. I thank you much for the Info.

Like I say, if you have any trouble or anything... its a pretty easy task though so you should be good to go, but just in case, I am always around and check in several times a day.
