Wagon Headliner

I know there is a sticky for HLs. I need to remove 1/2 of my headliner to drill holes and install well nuts for a roof rack (my wagon never had one). The headliner has been replaced and is in good shape. Can it be partially removed and reinstalled? Any tips or tricks? Thanks

Re: Wagon Headliner

It's just like any other headliner with bows. First remove the the windlace & plastic trim from the windows & side panels. Then carefully peel the headliner away from the pinchwelds down each side & the tailgate opening.

Once that's done, now you have access to remove enough rear bows to access the roof itself. Before you take the bows out, make sure to mark their location in each hole they are mounted in. It's not crucial, but it does make reassembly easier.

You'll probably need to scrape the tar paper off the inner roof skin to mount the roof rack.

Re: Wagon Headliner

The rear bows on a wagon are attached with screws. Not like the forward ones that are different lengths and can be placed in different holes.

Early wagons are different & don't have those brackets. All the bows in my 64 wagon are held in place in the holes.

I had no idea those brackets existed on later wagons. I learn something every day.
