Headlining Help

Postby Flappers » Tue Apr 30, 2013 2:34 pm

Hi, I have my Daimler booked in to have a new headliner fitted 2'nd week in May. The issue I have is that the card / board struts in all four corners have come away from the bodywork interior, see fig 1 - 4

I cant see how to re-attach them, or if indeed they can be. I only ask because the chap that's doing the trim for me is unsure if he can repair them. On a side note, does the rear window need to be removed to fix the headliner on this Series 3 please ?
Kind regards, Sam.

The cant rails and end pieces are held in place by about two or three varieties of clip. BD25974 was the most numerous and, when I did the job a few years ago, was still available.

Getting them lined up with the holes in the body panel before hitting the trim turned out to the secret!
