My 92 XLT has a blue cloth headliner that has come off the backing board in a few places. There are bubbles of loose cloth that hang down and they are worse when it is humid. Can I easily pop that whole thing out and re-glue the cloth to the board. Or, do I need a brand new assy.?

If it were me, I would go to the drug store and get a big syringe, but not a needle. Fill it with glue, then make a tiny slit in the headliner cloth, squirt the glue in there and stick the headliner back up. A tiny slit shouldn't be noticeable.

I had a truck that had a sagging headliner when I bought it. I ended up getting some foam-backed headliner material from JCWhitney. You can buy it by the yard. It is very wide so you will only have to buy a yard or two of material. You will also need a can of spray glue, I think 3m was the brand I used. Anyway, I think I only had around $20-$30 in a headliner that looked brand new. If you try to repair the old headliner you will be wasting your time, been there done that. The material is separating from foam underneath the material, not the headboard, you will never get it to stay attached because if heat, and the glue will seep back through. Your only problem that I can think of if you buy the material will be if they offer the color to match your interior. Mine was black so I didn't have any problem. Trust me, buy the headliner material with foam backing from JCWhitney, local upholstery shop, or wherever and you won't be disappointed.

Thx for the replys!
Hey KYFORDMAN, you have given me a reality check. I was thinking about quick fixes. I like your idea, and it never pays to do things halfway. I'll check out the upholstery shop near me and get some foam-backed fabric.
