Q: Ceiling material falling

asked by on

There is material falling down from the car's roof.

This means that the headliner glue is deteriorating, causing the fabric to fall. In most cases, the headliner will need to be replaced, or possibly the fabric can be re-glued by an upholstery shop, or someone who specializes in automotive interiors.
