Headliner Replacement

Post by peugeot30v6 » Sun Aug 30, 2015 8:37 am

I think by now everyone is quite familiar with the roof lining sagging. I tried to take it to my local Pug dealer but with a quote that would see my wallet empty for a while I decided to do it my self. 8 hours and ALOT of swearing later I finished. Here are the before and after.

Err, no? :shock: That's news to me, is that how it looked in the 2nd pic? :frown: I know replacing the roof lining (of any car) is not for the faint-hearted and likely to end in tears (of both kinds) so a well done is in order. Did you have to take the windows out?

I've never seen a 406 with a saggy headliner I must admit. Only replaced 1, that was in my old classic Mini, and I can imagine that was nothing compared to doing a '6 :lol: Interior looks mint, more pics when it's all back together please! 8)

I must say that the only hard but was the disassembly of all the interior trim bits. I also had to use a hairdryer to heat up the remaining glue but all in all it was not that difficult. It only cost 1/3 of the original dealer price. I didn't have to take the windows out, luckily I just reclined the front seats and pulled it out the rear door. At least now I feel more confident when I return to the UK to tackle the roof lining on the S60Image. Here are some pics of the interior after I finished. ImageImageImage
I also installed some HID H7 6000k lights, luckily the headlight restrictions here are a little less lenient then in the UK.Image
