Sagging Headliner

Anyone ever replace their headliner? Is this a DIY or am I better off having a shop do it? How much did you pay? Thanks in advance!

Have a shop do it...

Its a big hassle. I would only recommend a professional shop do it because of the mess you can make out of it. There's a cardboard backing that comes out and the material is attached to that, then manuevered back into the cabin of the car and reattached. All the trim has to come out, the visors, and working around the sunroof, a major pain in the butt. Down here in south Florida it usually runs about $200 to do the job, well worth it.

Do shops swap these out? I have tan leather interior with the black dash. How would a black headliner look?

if it is only sagging down... go out and get some 3m spray, from any hardware store and pray it on with that... it works wonders

Any color you want ....

Yes, they can use material in any color you want. The common colors are black and tan. Call a few auto upholstery shops in your area and talk to them.

Sounds like you have the opportunity to redo your headliner. DO IT IN SUEDE, IT LOOKS HOT! Costs you from 400-800. One guy on another forum who lives in NY says he can do it for 400.
