Well it was a try!

I took the liner down from my 09 H33 this weekend to install two new rope clutches. Taking it down was not much of a problem. Just take some micro needle nose pliers and reach into a corner and pull out. It came without much problem. However, replacing it was another matter! I tried the CD method and it worked but it was a real pain and very slow. The c channel is so tight it was hard to even get the edge of the CD in. I finally wound up breaking it. Anyway I had to give up on it for now but will try again this weekend. I may try a dulled paint scraper for the next try.

Melrna OK Guys and Gals. I did it. I pulled the headliner to put in a new rope clutch. Here is the skinny on the the vinyl headliner. First I must apologies I took no pictures. Camera is broke.

1. Tools - One small 3 inch plastic scrapper and one old CD disk
2. Headliner construction - The headliner is held in place with a plastic C-clamp track the holds the headliner in place. The vinyl liner is tucked into this track
3. Pulling it out - I wedged in the plastic scrapper in very near the corner of the liner where I wanted to pull it out. I took a very small nose pliers, wrapped it in lens cleaning cloth and gently pulled the corner out. From there I move the plastic scrapper along the track (to open the C-clamp) gently pulling now with my fingers the headliner out. PULL OUT ENOUGH OF THE HEADLINER YOU NEED TO ACCESS THE AREA TO BE WORKED ON.
4. Putting it back it - Easy Pease! When you pull the headliner out you will see how Hunter tucked it into the track. I took the CD disk and wedge it just before the track where the headliner is out. I than rolled the CD, catching the fold of the headliner, in the track to the end. You will have some left over material from the headliner sticking out. That is OK. Now take the plastic scrapper and tuck the rest of the material into the track. My technique was take the corner of the scrapper place it into the C-clamp track and roll the scrapper into the track. Do this until all extra material is tuck nicely and presto, you are done!

trantor12020 Melrna, Good Luck. I'm waiting to see your results. Do take some photos. I'll have to ply my liner sometime to fix a "lifting" winch.

Well, that is the million dollar question. Here is what Hunter told me.

The Headliner is held up in a track that is attach to the coach-roof. One has to find a corner, open up the track with a tool and carefully pull the headliner out of the track. Only take out as much of the headliner that you need to get to the area you are working on. For what I gathered it like a furling jib track that that headliner sits in. Only one can prey open the track. Now for the tool.

#1 Buy their custom made tool for $80.
#2. Use the edge of an old CD to open the track and reattach the headliner.
#3. Get a putty knife and file down the edge to a dull finish.
#4. Get a screen gasket tool (Like a pizza cutter but only dull).
I plan on trying this out this weekend. Wish me luck.

camaraderie Thanks Mel...that's a most encouraging post. Kudo's to Lewmar and Hunter! Great companies make the products their customers want and then treat their customers like gold.

zz4gta +1 that's great news. All to often we feel 'on our own' after the purchase of something, glad to see customer service is still a live and kickin.
