1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport headliner repair

Intallation instructions for replacing the headliner in a 1994 Jeep Cherokee. This is a step by step guide to replacing the headliner in a Jeep Cherokee, it will work for 1984 through 1996 Jeep Cherokees, because they are all basically the same, with the exception of a little variation in the accessories attached through the headliner board (like center consoles, etc.). This Jeep Cherokee Sport had the speakers in the headliner at the rear of the vehicle, it came down with the headliner board. The kit that will replace this headliner can be found at this link: Jeep Cherokee headliner kit.


bad sag in the old Jeep Cherokee headliner
Whew, what a mess of a bag in this 1994 Jeep Cherokee headliner, if it wasn't for the dome lights, it would have blown out the window a long time ago. Not a problem though, a couple of hours and it will look like new again. This Jeep Cherokee had 2 rear speakers in a abs shell at the rear of the vehicle. The dome light and side trim held it in place. The speakers had to be unplugged to remove it.
For this one, you will need a torx T20 and T50(for seat belt mounting brackets).
what a mess a baggy headliner is
Another shot of how the headliner in this Jeep Cherokee had turned completely loose. We didn't have to pull at this one to get it off, it fell off when we removed the dome lights and visors!

You can get a good view of what the speaker box looks like at the rear of some of the Jeep Cherokees, we recovered this with 15 inches of headliner material, plus the 82 inches it took to do the headliner in this Cherokee, the Cherokee headliner kit works for the whole thing.
removing the headliner board from 1994 jeep cherokee sport
This is a shot just to show how the headliner comes out, the rear gate is the easy way (which most people would figure out quickly).
cleaning the headliner board free from the old foam
The headliner board in this Jeep Cherokee is made of the softer fiberglass with a thin layer of plastic over it - care needs to be taken when cleaning a headliner board like this so as not to peel up the plastic film. Use soft bristled brush to remove the old foam.
putting the new headliner material on the headliner board of the jeep cherokee sport
When recovering the headliner board, either do it 1/2 at a time, or you can do about 1/3 at a time. It may be wise the first time; doing it about 1/2 of the board at a time. To do this; lay the material on the headliner board and fold about 1/3 of it back to apply the adhesive. Adhesive goes on material and board.

headliner replaced and looking good in 94 Jeep Cherokee
When headliner board and speaker box is finished for Jeep Cherokee, put it back just like it came out and I believe you will be pleased with how it all turned out.
complete new interior in the 1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport
This 1994 Jeep Cherokee got a little more than a headliner in our trim shop, the seats and the carpet were replaced. It looked like a new vehicle when it left, at least on the inside.


I'm not sure how many miles you can get out of a 94 Cherokee Sport - I would think it is according to how well it has been cared for by the previous owner. 250,000 miles is common from a vehicle now a days.
Thank you for all your knowledge. Does anybody know how many miles 94 jeep grand Cherokee laredo can take on before trans and engine need replacing. I know it depends on many things but curios how many the highest has gotten on a well maintained 94 laredo. Thank you very much. I just bought one last night site unseen, never did this type of thing before. I heard these vehicles were excellent no matter what.
I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo for it's 204,000 birthday would be great to not live with pins in liner! Will this kit work/fit? Overhead Console, no sunroof. Thank You! So glad an Independent JeepĀ® Dealer told me of you! Thanks, Bob Porter

Yes this kit will work for your Grand Cherokee.
Did you mean a sun roof ??

Great info on redoing my 1998 Cherokee Sport headliner
I have one question my jeep has a sun floor, are there any precautions or info I need prior to starting this installation
Yes, it is the same procedure for the 97 Cherokee.
Just wondering if this works for a 97 Cherokee Classic?

Great site btw!
A regular cherokee kit will work for this vehicle. We can do the headliner in a Cherokee with one can of adhesive, but if in doubt, may be wise to get an extra one.
We have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I would say probably medium gray. Does the general Jeep Cherokee kit work for this vehicle? Will I need extra glue with the kit?

Thank you for your time and trouble.
Thank You for all the effort you put into this page.
It will help me w/ the task. Blessing's
