headliner replacement 2001 XJ Sport

How technical does replacing the headliner get? I am beginner rookie all the way. Done a few fixes on my 01 Sport 2x4 but would like to attempt headliner if it's significantly cheaper than a quick shop visit.

Otherwise, anyone in Houston, TX area have a good shop recommendation?

Thanks for the advice!

Pull it out, pull the fabric, scrub off the adhesive/leftover fuzz, spray it with bedliner, re-install it.

Iv heard of people having someone do it for $150 but my quote from my local shop was $386 HA so for me its significantly cheaper. Not sure of the diy cost but the fabric nnd adhesive can't be much.

Headliner Replacement

I just did 2 XJ headliner replacements in the past 6 months. The cost was about $ 70.00 each for materials and glue. Items where purchased from Joann Fabrics stores.

Make sure to go rather heavy with the adhesive. First time I put some 3m super 77 on, it was clear but wasn't enough, put it so it looked like a dusting of snow and it stuck pretty dang good. Don't be afraid to let it sit and stick over night. Just don't put it in your room because it will smell like adhesive for a week

The trick with most spray adhesives is to coat both surfaces that are to be "mated" before installation. This allows the adhesive to cure to each part before putting them together.
The directions are pretty clear on the good name brands...3M for example.

Doing the headliner is pretty straight forward. Don't spray it with bed liner though as another person mentioned.

I bought some fabric for mine from Teamcherokee.com they had the right color and length so I only had to trim it a little bit.

You can do it in an afternoon if you take your time. You just have to unbolt all the trim pieces, unbolt the visors, and pull out the headliner. Then just scrape off the old stuff, spray on some glue, apply the new fabric and re-install.
