    How to fix falling headliner

    Anyone know a good way to fix a falling headliner? My wife's Honda Pilot has a two sections (about 8 inch square) where the headliner is separating and beginning to flap around. I'm thinking about cutting a small hole in it and using spray glue to fix it, but i"m not sure that's the way to go.

    Don't cut, heat up a nail and melt through the material. I think your thoughts are the only solution.

    I bought some of the spray adhesive from Advance Auto Parts and took a stab at it. The results were less than stellar. One problem is that there is a layer of foam between the backing and the fabric, and that layer of foam has deteriorated, and just crumbles away, so I had to remove the foam before gluing. I ended up with wrinkles, and it looks worse than when I started.

    Live and learn I guess.

    Don't try to change the subject, cause you are in denial about it.

    29? Again? You should be getting good at this....

    Seriously though there is a site you could get replacement headliners. I was tiring to locate it again. They did a special on a car show like trucks on fixing the headliner.
