Default How to Remove Your Headliner

Headliner Removal DIY Guide

Tools Needed:

Phillips Head Screw Driver
Flat Head Screw Driver
Panel Popper Tool
Small Pick-Tool Set
” Ratchet
10mm Socket
12mm Socket

You can start this project from any part you wish, so you do not have to follow the order I did things. I started in the front, and worked my way to the rear of the car for the most part, although you do have to jump around when you get close to the end.

AS WITH EVERY JOB YOU DO THAT REQUIRES UNPLUGGING ANYTHING ELECTRICAL, DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL BEFORE YOU BEGIN!

First, I did the A-Pillars:

Click the image to open in full size.

Start by pulling back the rubber molding inside the door jam, giving you better access to the door side of the pillar.

Click the image to open in full size.

Next, use the panel popper tool to pop the clips out on the pillar, starting at the top, working your way down towards the dash. Start from the outside, then the inside directly across, until you have popped all of the clips out. Once you have all of the clips popped out, you will have to sort of wiggle the bottom out from behind the dash. Repeat for the other side.

Click the image to open in full size.

Second, The Dome Light/Sunglass Holder:

Click the image to open in full size.

Start by opening the sunglass case, revealing the Phillips head screw holding it to the roof.

Click the image to open in full size.

Remove that screw with your Phillips head. Once the screw is out, start pulling down the piece one corner at a time. It will take some decent strength pulling, so don’t be nervous. Start at the back two corners, then the front two corners. Once you have all four corners out, you will see the harness for the dome lights hanging.

Click the image to open in full size.

Once you have the piece down, unplug the harness, and move on.

Click the image to open in full size.

Third, The Visors:

Click the image to open in full size.

Pull down the visor, giving you access to the mounts on either side.

Click the image to open in full size.

Using one of your pick tools, remove the plastic covers on each mount, revealing two Phillips head screws under the large mount and one Phillips head screw under the small mount.

Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

Remove the three screws, and lower the visor, revealing the harness for the vanity lights.

Click the image to open in full size.

Unplug the harness, and repeat for the other side.

Click the image to open in full size.

Fourth, I did the “Oh-Shit” Handles:

Click the image to open in full size.

“Open” the handle by pulling down, and you will see a plastic cover oon each end. Use one of your pick tools to remove those plastic covers, revealing two Phillips head screws underneath.

Click the image to open in full size.

Remove the two screws, and the handle will come right off. Repeat for the other 2 handles.

Fifth, I went to the B-Pillars:

Click the image to open in full size.

The B-Pillars take a little more work to get out. You could probably sneak them out easier, but I didn’t want to risk snapping a clip or breaking anything, so I took this route. Start by removing the moldings in the bottom of the front door. Just use your panel popping tool or flathead screwdriver to get under it from the outside edge, and pop it up carefully. Do the same for the molding inside the bottom of the rear door.

Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

Next, remove the lower B-Pillar piece, by using the panel popping tool to pop the clips from the bottom up. Once you have all of the clips popped out, remove the piece and set it aside.

Click the image to open in full size.

Next, you have to remove the seatbelt from the pillar. If you pull the adjustment tab on the seatbelt in the middle of the pillar, and twist it, it will reveal a 12mm bolt underneath holding the belt on. Remove that bolt, and let the belt hang.

Click the image to open in full size.

Next, you need to pop the “SRS Airbag” pieces off the pillar with one of your pic tools, revealing a 10MM bolt underneath.

Click the image to open in full size.

Unbolt that bolt, and you are ready to remove the pillar. Start at the bottom with your panel popping tool, and pop the clips out from bottom up, and the remove the pillar. Repeat for other side.

Click the image to open in full size.

Now that the pillar is removed, re-attach the seatbelt if you plan on driving the vehicle while the headliner is removed. Also, reinstall the gold bolt that you removed from under the SRS Airbag piece, as that bolt helps hold the airbag in place.

Sixth, The Rear Dome Lights:

Click the image to open in full size.

Easily pull down on the dome light assembly until it comes down, revealing the harness for the lights.

Click the image to open in full size.

Unplug the harness, and move on.

Click the image to open in full size.

Seventh, The C-Pillars:

Click the image to open in full size.

With your panel popping tool, start popping the clips out at the top of the pillar where it meets the headliner. From there, work your way down to the rear deck, and once you have popped all of the clips out, you will have to play with it and wiggle it out. Repeat for other side.

Click the image to open in full size.

At this point, you have removed everything holding the headliner up other then the stuff on the headliner itself.

Next, unplug the two harnesses at the bottom of the driver’s side window. These harnesses are what run everything you just removed (vanity lights, dome lights, etc.), they have NOTHING to do with the airbags.

Click the image to open in full size.

Now that the harnesses are unplugged, remove the three clips holding them to the pillar going up to the headliner.

Click the image to open in full size.

Next, unplug the harness on the rear-view mirror that runs to the harness, and let it hang.

Click the image to open in full size.

Ok, so now the big drop down starts. Starting at the front doors, slip the headliner out from under the door moldings, so that it starts to hang. Continue on to the back doors as well, so that the headliner is free from front to back on both sides of the vehicle.

Now that that’s done, start to pull down the headliner from the middle of the front windshield. As you see/feel the Velcro release, work your way back, using the sunroof openings as spots to pull down on lightly. Once they are all undone, the headliner should hang, and you should notice a ground wire attached to a screw above where the driver’s side C-Pillar was.

Click the image to open in full size.

Unbolt that, remove the ground wire, and put the bolt back in. You are now ready to wiggle the headliner assembly out of the vehicle.

The Skyview Panels:

Click the image to open in full size.

There is one silver 10mm nut, and one gold 10mm bolt holding on each panel. Remove those two items, and the only thing holding it on will be two white clips and a black metal clip, all of which just pop out. Drop it down, repeat for the other panel, and you are COMPLETELY done with the project. Well, other than putting it all back together.

The Sunroof Panel(Courtesy of DarkDog):

To remove you sunshade (slider panel), after you remove the headliner you will be able to see the rails your panel slides in. Towards the back of those panels, there are two white stops. There is a #1 Phillips screw in the top of each of these stops. Remove those screws, slide the stops out, and you will be able to pull your sunshade the whole way out through the back.

To reinstall, simply reverse the steps.. shade in, stops in place, screws in..

Very nice Gary!!! I was thinking about rmving it and spraying it black.. Hate the fact that the interior of the car is black but the headliner and pillars are that gray/creme color.

For those that dont want to go suede there Get bout 2 cans of Dupli Color Vinyl and Fabric Spray and do your headliner with that. Just make sure you let it dry and air out before you put it back in the car lol.

Very nice write-up. Detailed and professional.

Just a word of advice to anyone planning on taking on this project themselves.. Do NOT use an aerosol adhesive for this. The bond is not strong enough, and after just a little bit of time, it will begin to release, and your headliner will fall. Use a good automotive grade contact adhesive (I use Weldwood Contact Cement). It comes in liquid form, and has to be sprayed through a siphon feed paint gun.

Also, find a local upholstery shop, and they'll be able to order you any color headliner material that you would like. There are a lot of options out there other than stock, and suede.

Yea, I did everything myself...I do wish I did the headliner last, but that was the first thing I did...it came out really good, but I feel like if I had done the pillars and stuff first, I would have done a better job on the headliner because I have a much better feel for how to work with the material now that I have some practice.

I used 3M 90 Strength Spray Adhesive...hopefully it holds up well. From all the research I did online, alot of people had good luck with the spray on headliners. If I have any problems, I'll have to try the contact cement...

Almost forgot.. For people with an actual moonroof (not skyview)

To remove you sunshade (slider panel), after you remove the headliner you will be able to see the rails your panel slides in. Towards the back of those panels, there are two white stops. There is a #1 Phillips screw in the top of each of these stops. Remove those screws, slide the stops out, and you will be able to pull your sunshade the whole way out through the back.

To reinstall, simply reverse the steps.. shade in, stops in place, screws in..

no smell at all once it dries. i sprayed the entire interior of my civic with that stuff. it was strong at first but the smell went away. i sprayed the headliner and carpet.
