Your pictorial on removing the headliner from a 98 Jag is fantastic! I have a 2001 XJ8 with a sag in the back. Will the 98 directions apply to my 01? If the covering is in good shape, why can't it be re-adhesived to the existing board? Why does a new covering need to be used? Appreciate any insight you can share. You have an excellent site!
We'll take the first question first - will the 98 directions work with an 01 jaguar? The 98 and the 01 Jag are quite similiar, especially when it comes to the headliner board. Yes, they should be about the same.
And now the second question - why can't the old headliner fabric be used? Headliner fabric is a lightweight knitted cloth laminated to a thing sheet of foam - the foam is what gives it that smooth look, and smooth is good. Without the foam on the back, being that the fabric is so lightweight, something the size of a flea would show through as a dimple, and we should not fail to mention the adhesive would bleed through the light weight knitted fabric without the foam. That's just a couple good reasons why the old material should not be used.
Now for the third question - why does new headliner fabric need to be used? The second question answered this question as well.
