Just get it professionally cleaned by a car detailer. You'll take forever to do it yourself and may end up looking a bit patchy!

Agreed, you may end up doing further damage. Rooflining is very tricky to clean properly so i tend to use an aeresol interior cleaner and only spray a little patch and leave it there for a few minutes then followed by a gentle dab with a cloth.

don't use a steam cleaner as it makes the roof lining drop

be really careful.. I had a guy working for me once that fit a roof screen into a brand new tarago.. and stained the hood lining..

In trying to get it out, he damaged a much larger area.. the whole thing had to be replaced.... not cheap either..
