My headliner is pulling away from the backing. What is the best way to reattach it?

Mine sags at the front. I tried spray adhesive, 6 months later it peeled back.
Will have a pro replace it next year.

Is this "pulling away" located at the front or rear of the headliner, or is it pulling away somewhere towards the interior of it?

Default Re: Headliner sagging

Mine was pulling away at the front along the top of the windshield...I know this sounds stupid but I used an Elmer's glue stick (like kids use in school) to re attach it to the backing...figured it would wouldn't last the summer but it was too easy not to try.

2 years later, not one bit of it has re-separated. Might want to give it a try.

I used double sided adhesive tape at the front and rear edges where my headliner fabric had separated. It lasted a little over two years. I need to repair the same locations again.

Default Re: Headliner sagging

Yeah, mine is pulling away at the front along the windshield. Also above the passenger seat there is a bubble.
I may try the gluestick thing. Sounds like if it doesn’t last there is no permanent damage and can still be repaired using another method.

We had the issue on our 06 and 08 Vues at the front by the windshield. My wife fixed it with fabric glue and a couple of strips of fabric adhesive to hold it in place while the glue dried. Been two years and it still holds.
