it will fit into EA-ED easy as the interior ddimensions are the same.
only in the EF-EL there is 2 rivetts that hold the lining in the roof above the mirror as EA-ED were only glued up,so when taking the lining out of the donor car use a flat head screw driver & lever the lining off withh out ripping it. :twisted:

I took a look through pick 'n Payless, found a lining that looked good, removed it in about 20 minutes. The guy at the gate originally old me $50, when I got back, he charged me $30.

Just spent 1 hour on saturday, and 'ripped out' the old one (be warned, watch out for the rotten foam, it crumbles when you touch it, and is real annoying.

Fitted the new lining - really was easier than I thought, I now have a good non sagging roof lining, and am pretty pleased with myself.

I am not mechanically minded, but this was so easy, I didn't even get my hands dirty!!!

Moral of the story - look around wreckers for a good one - do it yourself. This has really upgraded the interior, and makes the car interior look 100 times better

the EF-EL roof lining feels 100% better & firmer compared to EA-ED

If 2 of us have done dont worry about the rivetts reg.
If ya unsure check my car again and you will see the SUN VISORS cover the rivetts up anywayz :lol:

The rear vision mirror on an EL is definatley attatched to the windscreen and nothing at all to do wiht the roof lining
