Once a headliner starts drooping there is nothing you can do to fix it. You can temporarily find solution though. I put thumb tacks in mine, they keep coming down every now and then though, you just need to push them put in. You could also staple it to the roof(not recommended).

The ultimate solution though is to buy a headliner kit for about $30 and replace it following the instructions.

You can get things at a craft store like joanne fabrics that work fine and never fall out.they have like a clear button with a tiny like corkscrew on them so all you have to do is turn them in,they really work fine.hope this helps.

The proper fix is to find foam backed headliner material at a fabric store. Take the trim out and take the headliner board down. Clean it and remove all the old foam. Put on the new fabric and reinstall in car.

optionally, you could remove the headliner and pay an upholstery shop to reline the fabric

or, if you've got plenty of $$$ buy a whole new headliner from a dealership

I have repared many sagging and drooping headliners with little expense. You must carefully remove the trim that holds the headliner in plaace then remove the headliner. They DO come out of the car when you figure out the angle it must be in. Be careful not to bend it. Once removed, carefully remove the material. If it begins to deteriorate, the headliner material can be purchade custom cut and fit from outlets like J.C. Whitney. Use a srpay adhesive like 3M and LIGHTLY spray the surface that the headliner material goes on. Center the material and smooth out from center to edges using your hands or a 3 or 4 inch paint roller until it is smooth and fastened. Let it set for a few hours for the adhesive to cure. Then reinstall the headliner, trim and anything else you removed. If done properly, it will look like new. Be patient.

What can do to stop your earlobes from dropping?

Gravity makes everything droop. You can't stop them from drooping if your genes say they are going to droop. But there are things you can do to prevent them from drooping more than necesary. Do not wear earings. They add weight which works with gravity. The only thing I can think of that could fix them if they already have dropped is surgery.

How do you remove head liner from a 1997 jeep Cherokee Laredo?

Istalling a headliner is not that difficult. First, remove everything that is bolted or screwed to the existing headliner, e.g., sun visors, luggage bar supports, etc. Next, remove anything that is bolted or screwed to the trim pieces that contact the headliner, e.g., shoulder strap supports. Next, firmly pull the trim pieces from the sides, rear and front. Next, pull the headliner down from the rear and slide it out through the tail gate. After that go to the fabric store and purchase foam backed headliner material and about two cans of headliner adhesive. Remove the material from the old headliner and clean the residual off with a putty scraper or stiff brush. After the headliner is clean and dry, spray it with headliner adhesive. Let dry until tacky. Next, spray the foam side of the headliner material with adhesive. When tacky apply the headliner material to the headliner shell. Work in sections and be careful to stretch and smooth the material as you go. Fold material over the ends as possible. Finally trim off the excess and cut the necessary holes for the sunroof, if so equipped, screws for the sun visors, etc. Installation is the reverse of removal.
