Default headliner/ removal of things holding it up,... help

How do the handels come off? do they just pop off or is there a special way to get them off? I'm trying to fix a saggy headliner.

The handles are tricky. There'* typically a center clip that pulls out then wiggling and probably breaking something

After that... you may want to search on headliner by John Deere Boy and Harofreak00, they both did great writeups on fixing their headliners.

it would help to know what year your car is... please put your year/model in your signature, you can do so by going into your profile..

i redid the headliner on my 95 ssei, here is what i did...
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ight=headliner

the headliner is held up with:
both visors and clips (remove the 2 screws for the visor piece, and pull the tabs for the other part)
passenger "oh ****" handle (pull the tabs out with a needle nose pliers, they are very brittle!!!)
rear "oh ****" handles (pull the tabs out the same)
sunroof trim ring
velcro pieces on the rear

well i ended up giving up after getting all the handels out. The sun visors have wires that lead to the visors through a small hole in the headliner board,... i dont want to screw up the wires or cut them. i have a 96 se. getting the handels out was a pain in the ***.

thanks a lot for the information.

Give the wires a little tug..you'll find the connectors.
