How to Remove Chevrolet Truck Headlinersby Zyon Silket
The headliners in Chevy trucks are comprised of a material lining, a thin pad and a hardboard. The headliner is suspended against the inner roof of the tuck by the trim panels located above the door jams, the dome light and the front sun visors. If you want to remove the headliner you must first remove all of these components. Although this may sound like a lot of work, the process is actually quite straightforward.
Locate the dome light towards the rear window. On the light you will locate a small cut out in the plastic lens. Place a screwdriver into the hole and pop the lens off the silver bezel. Remove the two screws that secure the dome light to the headliner pull the light off the headliner and unplug the wiring harness for the light.
Remove the two screws that secure each sun visor bracket to the headliner with a screwdriver. Remove the sun visors from the headliner.
Remove the screws that secure the side trip panels to the inner roof panel with a screwdriver. Do this on both sides of the vehicles. As you remove the second panel the headliner will start to fall.
Pull the headliner down and out of the Chevy truck.
