Can anyone point me in the direction of a place that can fix SUV headliners? Mine is on the verge of completely falling off.

Don't recall the name, but there's a place that's been around forever, and has a good rep - they're about a mile or so inside loop 410 on the left on Bandera Road.

A couple years back we ordered the whole part from the dealer that won't ever have that problem...nothing to come loose. And had our neighborhood mechanic put in in. We like it!

a Roll of double sided tape runs you about 4 bucks at wally world ;D or you can velcro it, or epoxy it. depending on the model or brand of SUV retail can get pretty expensive, plus installation.

Years ago, I had an older car with a one-piece fabric headliner that had almost completely fallen. Took it a hole in the wall auto upholstry shop on San Pedro (long since gone) to have the proprieter look at it and give me an estimate on re-gluing it.

He said there's no practical way to fix something like that, It would have to be torn out and completely replaced. He said an oversize sheet of new material would have to be glued in place, and then trimmed around the doors/windows/windshield afterwards. No way to re-install the headliner material after it has already been trimmed to fit, he said.

His estimate was a little over $200 IIRC for my subcompact car. This was over twenty years ago. I ended up not getting it fixed and trading the car shortly afterwards.
