  1. Leaky spot on headliner at rear right of wagon?

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I'm getting ready to tackle the phantom leak I have in the roof of my 2003 9-5 Aero wagon. The leak seems to be collecting in the rear right corner of the headliner, and will sometimes get bad enough to drip onto the floor of the trunk. Before I pull off all the trim pieces and...
  2. Sans Headliner

    C900 Workshop
    Ok, considering my 89 is already rough around the edges and rusty and my general dislike of old foam and industrial adhesives I was thinking of removing my sagging headliner completely and just pretending to be a race car and not having a headliner at all. Bad idea? Insulation and wind noise...

  4. Headliner / Sunroof Panel

  7. 'vert with sagging headliner

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So my '99 vert has a pretty saggy headliner and I'm wondering what can be done to tighten things up. Do I pull the headliner out and wash it in hot water to shrink it? It is stained from being wet but the top doesn't leak now. Are there cables I can tighten? Anybody have any ideas how to...
