    Default Xantia headliner

    are there any easy ways to reattach a droopy Xantia Headliner. The car goes really well but the crouched driving position is getting annoying along with interesting hair arrangements. Thanks

    Hi-I reckon that tent poles would work-what do you reckon?
    Some how some of the glue used by Peugeot was not as good as they have used previously.
    I might be able to help you out with a good one.

    Pekay.

    pull the whole thing out

    get some new material

    clean the old hood up and glue the new material to it

    or

    take it out and take it to a motor trimmer and get them to re cover it and then put it back in

    there is nothing you can do with what you have to stick it back up, not a damn thing

    It can be done, by getting rid of the disintegrating foam layer between the cloth and the backing board, then regluing with spray contact and a set of hands to help you position the cloth straight. A slow messy job.
    If you decide to take the lot out, the backing board is held on to the roof by a zigzag of black gunk.
    Mine done at home is still up there three years later, so it can be done.

    If you take it out yourself it seems to cost only about $150 at a trimmer. I need to do mine, as it's been held up with drawing pins ATM. Headlinings and clear coats on cars of this age are all starting to fail, which is damn annoying!
