    My Vectra roof lining is sagging and needs to be fixed. Please anyone who has fitted a new lining, how did you do it and what materials did you use and what is the result like. Also cost is important.
    Mr V is suggesting black Alcantra, very nice, so there is a starting point.

    Further to that in the multi-topic thread................

    You pull all the pillars trims in (don't neccessarily need to remove em) at the top, lights, handles, sunvisors etc, and delicately man-handle the lining out the back through the hatch or tailgate and off to an upholsterer/motor trimmer.

    We had everything removed and finally removed the lining at the trimmer's shop. I can't remember how much it cost, but $150ish sounds vaguely familiar. That was in WA though, so the East Coast will no doubt be cheaper.

    Alternatively, you can buy spray-on glue and put the fabric on yourself. This is what I'll do next time.

    Edit: Just read your other post Hannu........definitely use new fabric is my recommendation. If you go black you can also get like a spray on dye and do the pillars black too. I've used it and it worked great.
