i've broken many brackets by trying to get pieces out of this car so if anyone can tell me how to remove these things properly it'd be great.
also, do you know if new headliner material comes with the foamy stuff on the back of it already?
THe interior lights (you mean the ones over the sunshades, right?) Just pop right off. Jimmy a credit card in there or something to get some leverage. I replaced mine so long ago, I can't remember everything...
... but everything generally pops off. The pain is getting it in and out of the car without bending it. Oh, and there's a little hook on the back of it the headliner that hooks over a lip right by your rear window (in case u didn't know that already).
As for the material, I got mine at a junkyard. The headliner is just a peice of cardboard underneath all that.
P.S. Be careful when hooking the dohickies that attach your sun visors to your roof back up. I clipped them together too tightly and the lights got fucked up (I will go back and redo that... one day).
