Default How hard is it to replace the headliner

I have a 03 SS. I been looking to buy a 89-93 900. It seems everyone I looked at had the headliner hanging down. Where is a good place to buy them?

I liked two I found. One was a 93 for $4,900 and a 92 for $3,900. That seems a little high. They had there normal wear and tear. I didn't see any rust on both of them.

that ruby red is absolutely delicious but the black one has nice wheels, well the headliner isn't really too hard, you can still buy headliners for sunroof saabs from saab but not for ones without ops:

afaik you only undo a few clips and screws and it should drop right down search this forum as lots of people have done

or check http://uk.geocities.com/saab99tips/I...Headlining.htm

also have a look here

about buying either of those cars

If you search for my username, you will see a post marked "sagging headliner=no more" I have just finished re-doing mine. It is not that hard at all.

PM me for any questions.

Not a difficult project, especially with the hatchback. I finished mine up this evening. Probably looking at 4 hours or so...but, I have no real conception of time - so I could be wrong.

Cars in America seem to be very expensive... I had a look at that dealer's website and they have an 1984 BMW 528 for sale at $3500!!!! I bought one in similar condition last winter (low miles and full service history) for 400!!!
The black Saab is a full turbo and less money, seems nice in the pic, just make sure the turbo doesn't puff out smoke through the exhaust on idle

Thanks for the helps guys.I just found that PFS carries the headliners.

They just put those new wheels on the black one. When I looked at it last week. It had some rusted ugly wheels one it. The black one is also a auto.

Default dealers

i can believe them changing the wheels. Once i had them change the whole ferking car!
As far as I'm concerned, dealers are dealers. drugs, cars, women, arms, washing machines, nukes, cigaret.... and saabs from time to time.
I'm sure there are a few goodies selling cars. i found one.
but most are "dealers" and they "deal" deal deal deal deal deal deal deal deal.... it's a bloody deal mate! "you can't go wrong" pffft! guy rubs the pantwork a bit... " noice that isn't it? " see how the antenna goes up and down.. wooo!"
