How to fix car’s Headliner with Carpet tape — EASY CHEAP NO GLUE or Spray

i checked to see to how much it would cost to fix this professionally and it was anywhere from $500 – $1500 to have it replace in my 2007 Volkswagen Jetta

Im not paying that, and i found no solution online, so i made up my own

Thanks for posting the Clip; I'm going to try it on my Audi A6 Avant of 2000.

Rooflining in the loading area of the vehicle has sagged completely and there are signs of similar "movement" in th rest of the car.

Got a quote for R30 000 today (you can do the conversion yourself) which is totally ridiculous. That's for replacing the complete lining, sunroof included.

Sprayglue will probably not work, especially due to the thin foamrubber layer in the material, which has pulverised in the heat and caused the separation in the first place.

Use a plastic spatula for painting to apply plaster etc. Has rounded edges and won't run the risk of tearing the liner. Yea take off the plastic trim–makes it easier to tuck ans less work. Elmers Glue (ORANGE can Spray) makes and All Purpose SPRAY that is much easier to use and won't leave bubbles or noticeable spots.. DrIes VERY FAST within 30 seconds of time. Easy clean up with water too. I had to spray a piece of foam trim insulation during the dead of cold damp weather at near 28 degress and the dang thing clings –stayed on . Dries hard. Stays on in hot weather too. Cheaper than most sprays..Goes on very light so no clumps.

what is originally used to stick the headliner to the roof of the car before it is out of the factory? (expensive way)

To all the haters, if the visual result works, and it will stay up better than spray glue, how is this "cheating" the next owner?
If the headliner is held up, who cares HOW it's held up.
FFS It's not like he's throwing chemiweld into the engine to hide a leaking head gasket or something.
It's a cosmetic fix. Get off your high horses.
As for trading in, a dealer wont really give a rats about headliner anyway. They can have their guy fix it for next to nothing so I personally wouldn't bother if trading in.

No I have tried the spray adhesive I've used it more than once it does not hold I'm going to resort to Barbed thumbtacks or bend the pin on the thumbtack horizontal , But then I didn't scrape off the dusty , dirty foam that is under the fabric on the cardboard

Just a bit Cheaper than Dealer's price? NO WAY MORE CHEAPER like saving $1490 dollars cheaper, Thanks for the video but i saw you only use the carpet tape but not the mounting tape, so do i still need the mounting tape like i can put it on the back scratcher than put the carpet tape over it? Thanks again

It's "anyway." NEVER "anyways." There is NO NEED for the "s" at the end.
