The headlining is dropping; anybody got recommendations for glue? I nearly bought some spray adhesive, but looking at what it wasn't suitable for, I wasn't sure if it would work or wreck the headlining.....

Cheers.

I tried carpet spray adhesive, that didn't work. The problem seemed to be the crumbling foam backing... I was advised to change the whole headlining. That's never going to happen. Laughing

Let us know how you get on, my headlining is held up with bits of cardboard wedged in the hatch trim Sad

As stated above, glue rarely works and is just a quick fix !
Sooner or later it will come down again ! All the foam backing needs to be removed to give the glue any chance of holding the headlining up !

I have the same problem and the rear is now held up by an assortment of bits of card Embarassed

You need to do this http://www.tvr-cerbera.net/Public/Audi_Coupe_Headlining/Index.html

And so do I Laughing

Good article!
That looks nearly as bad as replacing a heater matrix.

Maybe I'll try removing the hatch trim, clean the foam away and re-glue ...

Hopefully the stuff is waiting for me @ Post Office- if weather is good, I'll give it a go. Beats it being held up with blue staples Shock

what a b!tch of a job. IT can wait! Laughing Laughing

To be done right, the whole roof lining needs to be taken out of the car- ideally this means removing a hell of a lot of interior trim to do it successfully......

Why not get a upholster to make you one ? It may be the only way to go ,all the roof linings that are in the cars that I break are like it as the foam behind them has a shelf life .

am thinking get it out, remove all foam and then either replace the lining OR buy some material to get instead... maybe easier said than done, though....

That material you use for covering hi-fi speakers in, works a treat plus its pretty cheap.
Or use a lot of V's stockings

found something called "microsuede" - a bit like Alcantera, but not as good? About £7 per metre, if memory serves... will order some samples to have a look...

I tried taping the headlining up, but that lasted a day. So....

I had some of this stuff lying around (free samples available):
http://www.richco.co.uk/products/grommets-and-bushings.html?grpcode=K1050

That's pushed onto the hatch trim and wedges the edge of the headlining against the roof. Better than the previous bits of card.

Let's see how long that will last.

the card is up; it's the trim that isn't. Didn't have time to look at it this week.... it's gonna be a weekend job when the weather is more favourable. I've seen some replacement trim I want to cover it with, as long as I can get the old stuff and foam off without damaging the backing....

It means most of the interior trim will need to come out- a lot will need to come out anyway to repair the damage to the rear quarter light glass when some scroat tried to nick the car earlier this week (I'll do a separate thread)

I had this problem on my S8 here in Dubai. The heat destroyed the adhesive and the head lining just delaminated itself. I tried fixing it with glue but this was a disaster. I ended up getting an upholsterer to re-upholster it. Quite cheap really, just some Indian in a back street workshop. You could try double sided tape. I've used a double side tissue tape over here on my door cards and this was pretty effective. It's very thin so doesn't add to the thickness. Could be an option if all else fails. Or find yourself a cheap Indian.

lol. The glue is rated at a higher temperature specifically for it. I've been looking into reupholstering it myself..
