Headliner removal instructions required


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help with detailed instructions and/or diagrams of how to remove the headliner?? I have a sunroof if that makes any difference??

The reason for removing it is unwanted 'rattles' when driving over bumps in the road (sunroof plastic rear wind deflector rattling on metal of roof i think) and vibration from Bose speaker on headiner above rear screen.

Would assume headlner out is the only option to fix this?? Doing my head in, please help???? :(

While we're on this topic, I checked with the dealer about an alcantara headliner for my 99 C2. Their retail on it was in the neighborhood of 1500 dollars, just for the part. And, it was for a 2000 model, none listed for 1999. Does anyone know if there was a difference in the headliners from year to year for the C2? And, does anyone know where I can find one for something significantly more reasonably priced? :D

I dont know if the headliners are different for the newer models (i suspect not) but have you tried a Porsche dismantler? Is your location in the States? Have a look on www.911pcar.com, they seem to have a comprehensive stock and you may find what your looking for in good condition?
