Removing headliner on a Crew cab?

How Do I remove the headliner on a crew cab?
I have read that you can squeeze the headliner out one of the doors, and I have read that the only way to get the headliner out is to remove the rear window.
So how do I get it out, and how do I remove the rear window if that is what is needed?


Thanks



Bubba

When I had the dealer do my clearance lights on my '99, they didn't take the head liner out of the truck. They said it can't come out, they didn't say anything about the back window. They had to work around it still in the cab. I don't know.

I took mine out throught the drivers door, dropped it turned it 90 degrees and angled out the drivers door. This was with the seats still in the truck too.

The only reason I've heard that the window needs to be removed is because there is a veyr high liklihood of creasing the liner when trying to get it through the door openings. Sounds like you were one of the lucky ones, Costa (or did you nd up with one of those creases?).

Why exactly are you removing the headliner? I would say that you have to remove the front or back glass.

No creases actually came out without a problem. Guess I was just one of the lucky ones!

I'm wrapping it with charcoal microsuede. the headliner right now is a little dirty and a darker charcoal will go much better with the interior. plus make it a little darker inside which will be nice.

Redboat is correct. I just got the headliner out and you do not need to remove the glass. I did remove the front seats just to make it easier on myself but it came right out, just need to gget the angles right.

Now need to put the suede on and then install everything bakc up again
