    Headlining Question

    How do you drop the headlining in the Astra G?...

    I'd like to remove / drop down the headlining in my SXi to allow me to fit a proximity sensor for my alarm.

    I recall seeing some pictures of someone doing this (Rob IIRC) & would like to know how its done & how hard / easy it it.

    Also, what holds the lining on,, i.e. is it stuck on or clipped on or just supported by the surrounding plastics? - Last thing I want to do is remove it, only to discover it was stuck on & I have nothing to stick it back with...

    Thanks in advance



    Stubs.

    The front inner A panels seemingly just clip off.
    The wires are run up behind that panel on my alarm.

    Cheers, but i'd like to remove the whole headlining so I can locate the sensor centrally, facing down from the roof of the car.... it's a dual-zone proximity, and that is the reccomended location for maximum reliablity & accuracy.

    best of buying a haynes manual, its not stuck on and is held in place by the surrounding trim. The main trim parts that you find a pain to get of are the grab handles...very fiddly if you not sure what you are doing.

    the haynes manual is very good for telling you how to do this though. Sorry I didnt see this sooner.

    Thanks Mat,,, I did this yesterday,, reason i've not bought a Haynes manual is cos i can't find one that covers the 2000 onwards...
    Anyway, like you said, the lining is mostly held in by the surrounding trim.. there are a couple of sticky areas & several velro pads at the rear..
    I found the grab handles really easy to remove & replace, but I could not get the visors off...
    Anyway, I managed to drop the lining from the rear, just enough for me to get my arm in to fit my sensor....

    Cheers.
