Headliner replacement HELP

I have an 09 hatch and a coke bottle exploded and has stained my headliner. I called the dealarship and they said to replace the headliner they would also have to replace the Antenna and Roof cord. So the price for the replacement is $511.

Any idea why I will also have to replace the antenna and roof cord as well? Or a better easy to cover it up while still looking stock?

*Also, a car detailer said that they are not typical headliners but are a "box style."

This all sounds like bullshit to me.
I'd drop it and than decide what to do myself. The headliner in my 11' looks like an ordinary headliner, which I've replaced quite a few in my day.

DIY is almost always the way to go.

If the stain is new drop out the headliner yourself and put it on the garage floor, Grab some Folex and clean It like you would clean carpet. Dont get it too wet or it could seperate and sag.

If the stain has had time to set you can get an upholstry shop to redo your headliner for half of what the dealer is charging, and you get to pick your material so you dont have to go with the same suede. Keep in mind dark colors make things feel small so I usually recommend sticking with something light with minimal pattern

ill look the part up and see if the cord is integrated into the head liner. Can i have the last 8 digits of the vin?


E- check the parts catalog and the headline come with the antenna wire attached to it. the wire is taped to the headliner and is the ONLY way you can get the head liner itself.

this is the part number and list price per Subaru parts guide.
94419FG151ME TRIM PNL 317.82 317.82

515 bucks isnt a bad price for the whole thing replaced

could they just untape the antenna and retape it to the new headliner?

The stain has had plenty of time to set and trying to get it cleaned will only make it look like crap. I have had 2 detailers try and it only smears it essentially.

Could i take out the headliner and have something put in its place?

you can not order the new head liner with out the wire harness and antenna attached. so yes we could do that but the cost would be no different. The new head liner comes with the antenna built into it from the factory. that is the only way it can be ordered

You can have a new layer of fabric glued/pined/cornerd on top of the old headliner for about $200 at most upholstery shops depending on the fabric you choose.

I might try steaming the old one first to see if that takes care of the stain, You really want to get stuff like soda up as soon as possible because most sugary drinks are also mildly corrosive.
