1988 Dodge Caravan headliner installation

This is a Dodge Caravan (minivan) with a saggy headliner. We used these four simple steps and a headliner kit to remedy the problem. We installed the headliner without removing the headliner board from the vehicle. This installation guide is to show that you can install a headliner without removing the headliner board. The color we used was 1998 currant, a standard sized minivan headliner kit will do this vehicle, click this link to go to the order page.

Step 1
Remove the visors, dome light, clothes hangers, or anything else attached through headliner.
Step 1
Remove the cloth and clean the board with a brush (I prefer softbristled brush).
Step 2
You may even want to use a portable vac...works good.
Step 2
The board should be free from old foam.
Step 3
Glue the headliner cloth to the board. Spray both cloth and headliner board. I glued a small section in the middle first (about 12" wide).
Step 4
When the cloth is glued to the board...trim the excess (leave about 1 inch) and tuck under trim. LOOKS LIKE NEW!

Most of these are assembled in the headliner board itself, it's possible the have a couple of screws located somewhere for support, but they usually come out with the headliner board assembly.


How do I remove the ceiling console with the lights and garage door remote holders?
