    You said that we should do things above freezing temperatures. If I needed to get the headliner replaced I would want to know that it is being done professionally. Maybe I should get a professional to help me learn about car maintenance.

    If the headliner has already fallen or going to fall then one can use spray adhesive with the headliner in his car. Ideally, one can remove the headliner foam material, clean the surface and glue the headliner for longer lasting results. Apart from this, one can also use sequin pins to hold up his headliner. I think it depends on the case because if the headliner is not in a condition for repairing then the replacement will be the only option. Though this is the most expensive option, but it is able to give factory results.
