Default Headliner repair

My headliner is starting to come apart near the backseat dome lights. What is the best kind of glue to put it back up. Its not sagging too bad, but i fear it will get worse the longer i wait.

My wife and father both have a 2006 Jetta and they are both coming apart around the side airbags in the back. It's crazy that VW used such cheap materials on these MKVs. I've talked to many people and they said that the entire headliner will need to replaced. It ranges from around $300-800 to replace.

Wow that is quite a spread in price. Are these happening to folks more so in warm climages or cold climates? Interesting.

My failing headliner lives in and around Louisville, KY. I would call it neither hot nor cold, just not a robust headliner.

Mine started to delaminate around the sunglass holder this spring. Now it is coming apart at the top of the C pillar too. Bummer, because the rest of the interior is holding up really well for a car with 250K miles on it.

The headliner for mine is bad and I checked with VWoA and of course they said they would not stand behind it and was not aware of any problems with the headliners even after I sent the link to all the problems listed on here. I called a couple dealers in KC and they would sell me one cash for $150.

Moved to Corpus Christi and mine started to fall down shortly after the move. Started near the rear dome light but has since spread throughout the cabin. Waiting until I move back east to have it replaced, the local dealership is probably the worst VW dealer I have had to deal with across 4 states.

40 little stainless sheet metal screws (#4 x 3/8 I think) and 40 little washers, and mine is back up. Made a kinda neat quilted pattern. Total cost about ten bucks, took about an hour.

Dudes!! VW North America will fix this for free!! I have had mine and many others on the forum do this. Call VW North America, tell them about the headliner issue. There is some type of bulletin regarding this. They will call your local dealer and work the deal out. It's a free headliner with free labor. I did mine less than a year ago on my 06 TDI. It doesn't matter what your mileage is.

Is there a name or a number for this bulletin? Most posts say they have had no luck in getting this repaired by VW.

I called VWoA about a month ago and the woman declined me.....said there was not enough problems to warrant a recall or help. She didn't make me very happy to say the least. How did you go about getting them to agree to fix yours?

I guess I talked to the right person. There is enough of a problem for them to warrant a fix, because it's already happened. Call back and give them the case number I posted previously.
