    headliner falling at top corners of rear window - which glue to use?

    It's already 110+ out here in Phoenix, and yesterday my girl notices that I've got a corner of the headliner hanging down at the top of the rear window. 2 hours later, I notice the OTHER corner is now down. Sheesh! I've already replaced my A-pillar covers, that were peeling badly at the bottom when I bought the car in April. What's the best spray glue stuff to tack the back corners back up? Any special technique? Hopefully whatever I use can handle the brutal Phoenix heat.

    if you're referring to the C pillars, just replace those bad boys with new ones. you can get em for pretty cheap on ECS.

    Op was full of crap. I finally crawled into the back seat and had a closeup look. It's indeed the C-pillars that are droopy. I see that ECS has them. How easy are they to remove/replace? I got my A-pillars off but couldn't get them back into place myself. Not wanting to have to wrestle with the C-pillars, hoping they just snap off/on? Simple trim removal tool does the job, yes?

    kevin, yes a simple pry tool and a torx (T15 I think?) driver will do the trick. fairly easy and straightforward to DIY (i did it myself a few months back). the only trick is getting the bottom corners to fit.
