Re: How to Remove the Headliner

Thanks for the pics. I need to remove the headliner to track down a minor rack leak. I've been putting it off because I've been dreading it. It WILL happens this summer though.

No problem pulling the headliner out without removing the rear seats?

Not a problem, you do have to fold the liner in half-ish (about 20%) temporarily to pull it out the back. It leaves some creases, but they come out after a few days. That is the hardest part of removing it.

If you remove the back side plastic panels can the headliner be removed without creasing it? My headliner is mint, so I don't want to crease it or get it dirty/smuggled when it's removed.

The limiting factor is the size of the rear door, the headliner is wider than the door way. Depending on what you need to do, it is possible you could just drop it in place and make the fix without removing the headliner from the FJ.

If you lay down all the seats (or remove the rear seats, though the front seat may still pose some problems) then you could possibly remove the headliner at a diagonal to the rear door way. I didn't do this but I'll guess it will fit without bending this way.

Gotcha. I need to run with the headliner removed for an unknown number of days so I can determine exactly where/how the water is coming in and how to fix it.

Re: How to Remove the Headliner

Thanks Ruebarb, I removed mine awhile back by myself when I drilled my roof and installed the through the roof connectors, Headliner was actually really easy, and managed it by myself. I wish I would have had time to take pics like you did. Again, thanks for the time you put into this. Cant wait to see how you integrate your headliner with your new OH console!
