Hi Pete,I'm sorry to take so long to reply. I also need the steps for removing the headliner. I'm assuming that the shades and stuff need to come off and the glass is removed? I can't seem to get the full list of steps to get these parts replaced. I have been quoted 11.5 hours of labor to fix with parts that are over 1200. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to tackle this myself or possibly just sell the car. Can you give me step by step removal instructions from the beginning? And...yes, the file you sent and what you're showing me is similar to what I saw at the shop when he pulled up the instructions. Also, the file you sent is really grainy, can you send higher resolution images next time?
