Body Lifting Pads and Headliners

So, my headliner had been going to shit for a loonnggg time. I finally found one in perfect shape from the junkyard for $70 and straight out replaced it. Looks beautiful. A month earlier, I found some body lifting pads at the yard that someone had stolen from underneath my car like a year ago... and didn't think much of it, right? Well, a friend of mine had been looking up shit on the computer and found a recall for those body lifting pads. It seems that, without those pads, people were complaining of wind noise... and it caused people's headliner's to fall down, too! Crazy, huh?

With the jacking pads missing, wind enters the body from the bottom, races up the "A" pillar and exits at the windshield causing the headliner to peel back from the leading edge. Also creates an irritating noise similiar to blowing over the top of a soda bottle.

lol beach good investigative work my dear.. jackpads are very notorious for falling off, i had to actually replace 3 (2 were missing , one was mangled) and this time we used silicone to make sure that all 3 plus the remaining one would have a better chance of survival. as for the headliner you should have gotten the black one from out of an M3, black headliner is back in!

I think you just solved the issue with my m3's 100+ mph "wind noise". IIRC my car (which is currently in shop) was missing its jacking pads.

Thank you.

At least, it didn't have pads when I first got it on a lift to stare at the marvelous suspension. Does it normally not?
