the roof lining in my ef is sagging on the drivers side above the drivers seat. i dont know what causes it and i dont know how to fix the problem. i hav been told that it can be fixd by certain pple with the know how and equipment, is this true?
it started out as the size of a 50 cent piece and now it has spread to almost halfway to the otherside of the roof.
WTF?

Best thing to do is to get it replaced, should be about 150 bucks for a new roof liner fitted,

M&W motor trimming Peachtree Road Penrith
The one on my NF lane cost $170 to do and it is an excellent job. That was remove , replace the foam and material and refit.
They had the car for 2 hours.
Another member has had his one done there too and is happy also.

The roof lining sagging is factory fitted int he E series Fords. The foam between the material and the cardboard backing crumbles and makes the lining drop.
Unfortunately it will only get worse before it gets better.

My EB Ghia's roof lining still hasn't started to sag, or my ED GLI i have in the driveway that i'm wrecking atm, but my Eb Xr8 is sagging badly. I've repaired my mates roof lining, not too hard to fix at all...

Remove from car. Remove material from backing, scrape away old foam. Buy new foam from clarke rubber, use some contact glue & attach foam to backing, then glue material to foam. Refit & away you go.

Cheers

About a year ago, my EF roof lining started sagging. Cost me $120 and less than an hour later like new. The backing was not removed. Was told it was more of a hassle taking it out and the risk of damaging it. A drop sheet was put over the dash, seats and rear shelf. Some of the plastic trim, interior light and sun visors removed. The lining material was pulled out, the old deteriorated foam scrapped off. Air sprayed glue on the backing board, the foam/ lining already together smoothed/pushed onto the backing. Trim etc refitted. The 2 young fellas did an excellent job! Advised to keep the windows up to allow drying.

Was going to go a different colour to the original. The owner of the business talked me into keeping it the same, matching the trim. Conceded it was a wise decision.

Certainly better getting it done professionally.

(Not sure of forum ruling mentioning the business located in Brisbane).
