I’ve got a 2003 Discovery II. The cloth on the headliner is starting to sag. It’s not as bad as some I’ve seen. You know the ones that look like a tent that wasn’t set up properly. And the driver can’t see out the rear view mirror.
Any suggestions on how to keep it from getting worse? Or, is there a way to fix it beyond finding another one and switching them out?
Honestly the best ways I’ve seen to fix it is to remove it, remove the fabric and paint it. Apparently if you get it recovered it will eventually start sagging again due to all the odd angles and such.
Another option is to just remove it and take it to an automotive upholstery shop and have them recover it. My headliner is starting to sag a bit in my 2000 as well so I’ll be thinking about doing something over this upcoming winter.
I’ll be curious to see what you guys end up doing – mine is sagging – less than most, but at some point I’ll have to deal with it. You would think there would be way to put a very thin needle into the sags, squirt in some adhesive and fix those low spots, but I’m sure even a tiny hole would start a rip…..
