Is it the lining sagged of the whole cardboard thing too?

If its only the lining, i have fixed this by pulli9ng it down, spraying it with septone spray adhesive, then carefully lay it back up there.

If its the backing too, your f**k.

Go to your local Motor trimmer, they would see about two of these things a month, Holden, Ford, Range Rover, Saab, All of this type of headlining will go eventually. I normally charge about $275 for most large sedans $320 for wagons and that is doing it properly, removing the headlining from the car, clean down the board, and apply new material with a spray grade contact adhesive from a spray gun not a can,( I havn't found any spray can ones that I'm happy with :roll: )

Takes an hour to replace one entirely, and about 40 to 50 bucks to pick up a good EL one...

re-adhering will look less than satisfactory..

seriously, I tried that before I just paid the 50 bucks and bought an EL one.. looks great and no sag.. took 1 hour or so to change.

Re gluing won't last, if I was in your position, I would at least clean down the board and use new material.
