Fraying of Headliner

Some customers may comment on seeing a worn area or fraying of the headliner at the sunroof module rear opening. Examples of the wear condition are shown in the graphics above.

Cause The cause of the condition may be due to a contact condition between the headliner and the sunroof module when cycling.

contact condition between the headliner and the sunroof module

Lack of clearance between the sunroof sunshade and the rear headliner opening may result in a touch condition that leads to edge fray of the headliner over repeated use.

 

 

Correction

“double” layer spacers (1)

For vehicles displaying the condition it will be necessary to replace the headliner, but prior to installation, also add “double” layer spacers (1) to the single lock retainer (2) at some locations on the new headliner.

“double” layer spacers (1)

The original headliner should have contained a combination of single (1) and double (2) dual lock retainers.

four double dual lock retainers (1)

Commonly, there should be four double dual lock retainers (1) at the front headliner opening, and seven single dual lock retainers (2) at the sides and rear. Transfer the existing double dual lock retainers and add the service part spacer listed below to all single dual locks, and transfer those. Ensure double dual locks secure the headliner around the entire sunroof opening.

 

Service Procedure

  1. Remove the headliner. Refer to Headlining Trim Panel Replacement (With Sunroof) in SI.
