Default Headliner removal and installation

pretty simple job that will take no more then 2 hours!
1999 sl1 saturn

i used 3m 90 adhesive spray and it worked perfectly with a great bond..

put both seats all the way down.

Remove the dome light *richpin

remove the two sunvisors with a PH screwdriver.

remove the handles on the roof with a 7mm ratchet.

remove the side panels that are held in with plastic clips.

remove the brake light panel that is held in with clips.

remove the seatbelt buckle with a torque 50 bit.



you can then take the headliner out, it fit perfectly out of the rear doors of the sedan model, if you own a coupe you might need to remove it through the trunk.

i then used a metal and plastic wire brush to clear off all of the old foam/headliner.

slowly worked from one end to the other going in 20% increments, using a plastic card to get out all of the wrinkles.

BOOM, ITS DONE. as easy as that.

installation is the same as the removal, in reverse order.

(*richpin, he has a good video on youtube showing how the dome light is correctly removed)

unfortunately the forum will not let me post the same pictures twice, you can see the final result on the " what did you do to your saturn today" thread, on page 315 post 6297

if someone with over 15 posts, could post the link to the pictures i would greatly appreciate it.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Haha! Great idea. When I did it I bought some generic cheapest material that happened to be the perfect color match.
