Default Headliner removal

After a search, I've discovered that the only headliner tutorial specific to the PT (Mr Mike's) is no longer on his site. Does anyone have a link to a tutorial w/ pics or video specifically for a PT headliner?

I'm removing the headliner so my favorite body shop can install my factory roof rack. He agreed to make time for the job if I pull the headliner myself, and I'll also save about $250 in labor by doing it before I bring in the car on Monday.

That, and the part about the two button retainers at the back is what everyone else left out. You got it all for sure. I just took it out, by myself, (and it has a sunroof) and would have ruined the headliner if I had believed some others about the two button retainers in the rear. Those things are 2" long and really do have to be taken out carefully first. Theres no way to leave'em in and just pull down the liner without really tearing it all to...heck.

With the sunroof, I found that there is also a harness for the sunroof motor controls, which connects about midway with a large white connector that slides onto a tab on the underside of the roof. Anyways, I'm ready for the shop to do the roof rack now. When they're done, I'll apply the closed cell foam as in the Mr. Mike's page, before reinstalling the headliner.

Thanks for the detailed instructions. Saved my headliner's life.

If you pull down the rear part of the headliner after removing the rest of the trim. The push pins pop right out. Two different headliners and the same result. Not difficult at all.
