removing the headliner

Has anyone removed the headliner in a stilo?

I need to drop down the passenger side to pop out a small dent in the thin panel over the passenger door as I dented it very slightly, but it is noticable.

Is removing the headliner easy?

Re: removing the headliner

Easy enough,nothing drastic too watch out for.You can bend the headliner a fair bit & it will return to shape without creasing.Obviously be careful if you have side curtains.

Re: removing the headliner

I have removed the headliner on my punto, so it could get the leather treatment, & also so i could sound deaden the roof of the car. They should be pretty similar. There will be various clips screws & also the sunroof rubber to deal with(if you have one). You may need to unbolt the interior seats also so there is space to get it out. Also the headliner will be glued to the roof so be careful not to ruin it. Use a thin sheet of meatal or similar to try and break the bond when attempting removal. This can be a real pain. But it is easily done with patience. just be steady as you go..........

Re: removing the headliner

We tried getting it out on the 3dr but it seemed impossible via the boot; in the end, we took both front seats out and did a Chuckle-Brothers routine (to me, to you) to get it in via the doors.

Re: removing the headliner

Remember dont be afraid to bend it(the headliner )...it looks creased but they will come out by themselves.
