Headliner Removal

Does anyone know if there is a step by step instructions to drop the headliner to make repairs (preferably with pics) on the front and rear sun roof or just to drop it. I understand its pretty straight forward take a crap load of screws out and and pull all the trim off, but I was wanting to know if there are any tips to getting the rear air vent trim off without breaking them or if I could take off some of the trim and drop it half way to access the rear sunroof without cracking the headliner. I was wanting to repair the sunroof leak, re-cover the headliner, and install a roof mounted DVD player all at once. Dropping this headliner looks like a long and painstaking job and I only want to do it once if I could. Some tips and some pics would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to over 100 picture of a Headliner Board that has been pulled out and processed to be recovered.

landrover Discovery Series I & II Headliner Replacment pictures from friends & fun photos on webshots

I would recommend removing the:

1) Visors & Visor Clips
2) All grab Handles
3) Front Plastic Console, once all the Philips screws are out and the console is dropped then and only then remove the wire for the front dome light, don't remove the clear plastic cover from the front much to much work, remove the wires only from the back.
4) Remove the front "A" Post
5) Open front and back doors, remove rubber seal from around the "B" Post, unclip the "B" Post Clips that hold the "B" Post cover to the Pillar. You can only remove the "B" Post Cover by using this method.
6) If you have a Rear Seat Belt in the cargo area you will need to remove it (17mm) to feed it through the Side Window Trim Panels
7) Remove the Plastic Rear Cover that are around the rear side windows, their are about they are held in with about 7 plastic push clips.
8) Remove rear dome light closest to the rear 5th door
9) remove the felt trim around the opening of the sunroofs both front and back
10) Remove the Rear Sunroof Switch located within the plastic console, behind it you will find a Phillips head screw that holds the plastic console to the Roof of the Vehicle, once this screw has been removed then detach the wire harness for the rear AC switch, Dome light etc.
11) Now your ready to remove the Headliner Board out the rear door 5th door.
12) Remember to Fold down both the rear seats before removing the board.

Dead link...ancient thread resurrection...

I'm facing some headliner restoration and curious if any of the original posters of this old thread are still active? Is headliner express still around? Can I still get at the pictures somehow?

Thanks

Mike

This link is from another forum and the member who made the thread is very knowledgeable on rovers. honestly removing the headliner and painting it is the best option. If you try to just repair the fabric within time you will be right back to your current situation.

Hello all,

I just completed my new headliner installation for my RRS 2006. I came across this thread and even though this is a Discovery forum, I found it very helpful. If someone it is interested, I can write down a little of my experience and a little about the process (few pictures too). For a first time headliner job, I am very pleased with my work but I definitely made some mistakes. That is the part where Bill (Headliner Express) comes in:

The RRS 2006 front part of the headliner is held up by two metal tabs on the headliner that clip right in front of the sunroof. After installing the new fabric on the headliner and placing the headliner board back in place, I notice the two metal tabs would not clip in. I called Bill to get some advise and this gentleman really walked me through the process FREE of cost and even offered to help me again while I was doing the actual job. I was really impress by his specific knowledge on these automobiles and professional demeanor. If you are reading this Bill, thanks a million!

I am located in Miami, so it is good to know that in worst off conditions, I can take a three hour trip to the Orlando area and have Headliner Express fix any issue I cannot resolve. I wish I would have completed the job 100% myself but it is impossible to know about every single detail and the correct procedure to follow. None the less, I am very satisfied with the result. If you are thinking about fixing yours, take a plunge and do it.

Rafael
