2015 Transit headliner removal video

I have had people ask me how to get out the headliner
So I filmed this video before I forgot how I did it

I added notes all over this video
Mobile users can't see the notes, so go to a regular computer to see all the video notes

Here's the youtube video explaining how I removed my headliner and plastic shelf unit

Nice vid, thanks for posting.

The low roof vans are totally different - sunshade and their retainer screws up front, then four clips along the back. Besides the screws the entire front is held in by the trim.

Great video thanks for posting. Is it necessary to remove the 4 tough to remove screws at the front. With everything else off will the headliner tip down enough to reach in and place insulation?

Nope, you have to get the headliner out
You can't tip it down because you will damage the headliner trying to bend it down with the 4 screws still attached

Also, you won't be able to reach way up front with the headliner still in place

Actually on second thought, you could not install the sticky stuff that I am using.
But it may be possible to slide some sort of non sticky battens down front
maybe push them down front with a stick?

Don't know for sure, just speculating
I'll try and remember to take a pic after I get the headliner installed again

Thanks. I also am planning on putting the sticky stuff for noise reduction and then some sort of insulation.

Did you find the sticky stuff made a noticeable improvement to noise?
