i also can not remove the C pillar trim at the rear of a mk2 punto 3door...the trim is connected to the rear speaker trims i unscrewed it all had it all hangin loose but could not take it off because of the rear seatbelt which goes through the c pillar trim...i could not feed the seablet through the trim from either side no matter what...how do i completely remove this trim??

Re: Headliner & C pillar :(

You have to remove the seat belt to get it off completely. As for the headliner I did comment saying I dented all the roof and I could hang my entire weight off it without it budging.
Took me and a mate to grab it swinging back n forth to get the damn thing off. Best bet is a knife under where you can get loose and cut it away then maybe sand the glue off after

I'll take a look on my 3 door once I'm back from work but on my 5 door they did slip out. I'm fairly certain they did anyway.

Are you replacing them or just fitting the headliner?
