I have an '88 Buick Le Sabre 4 door, the headliner trim on this car looks almost impossible to remove
I have an '88 Buick Le Sabre 4 door, the headliner trim on this car looks almost impossible to remove without damage. How is this accomplished?
To remove this trim; start on the door post (center of car). It has 3 pieces of trim; 1 big center piece and 2 small outside pieces that cover the edge of the center piece.
1. Pull the 2 small outside pieces loose 1st; about halfway down the door post. There are 2 metal pinch clips inside these small pieces that pinch on the body of the car. You can try to pull them loose with your fingers or use a screwdriver to pry them loose using the body of the car as leverage. (be careful not to scratch the car)
2. When these 2 pieces are loose; pull the big piece loose (has one plug at the top just above the seat belt attachment).
3. Now you can remove that long piece of trim that goes from the front bottom of the windshield post to the rear of the back seat. This piece has plastic fins on it (about 3 of them) that wedges into metal clips that are fastened to the top of the car. Using a screwdriver (after you find where they are); stick the tip under the trim - catch the edge of the clip - and gently pry down. This will spread the clip and pry down on the trim at the same time. There are 2 clips at the front that attach the trim to the windshield posts.
Hopefully this is the automobile trim that you are asking about.
This 92 park avenue trim should be basically like the 88 le sabre.
The full sized headliner kit will fit the 88 Buick Le Sabre.
