Hello All,
I am new to the forum.
I have a 2003 Passat Wagon. The glue that holds the ceiling fabric to the roof has let go from the sun roof to the back of the car.
Has this happened to anyone else and is there a way to fix this?

I have an 08 Rabbit and the whole headliner dropped a few years ago. I went to a local upholsterer and had it replaced. 100% matching fabric would have cost $500+, but they used “close enough” for less than $200. When look at the A-pillar you can see that the colors are not exact, but it is definitely close enough not to matter to me.

Appreciate your response! I actually had the same happen to an old Golf but I just cut it all out. It was not the right thing to do looking back. It sounds like your method might work for me. How long ago did you have the upholstery work done, and how is it holding up?

I honestly don’t remember how long ago it was, but it’s been several years, probably 4-5. Sitting in the car right now and it still looks great, no droops anywhere. I hate spending $$ on cosmetic stuff for my car but this was absolutely worth it, glad I did.
