How to remove headliner from 2004 GMC Sierra 2500hd?

Postby phillips_211 [OP] » Oct 21 2013, 5:00pm

Does anyone know how to drop the front part of the headliner down on a 2004 gmc sierra 2500hd? I am trying to install cab lights and have removed everything that I can such as: visors, center dome light, passenger side grab bar, and DS PS pillar covers. It still seems like something is holding it up and dont want to break anything. Any help on the subject would be great.

You should be good to go, I would also remove the seat belt from the B post and then remove the plastic there too. You can get it out with it still being there, but its just a bit more of a pain. Also, if you have the center over head console, there will be screws holding that up. if there are screws then it'll have the spring retainer clips, which in that case you just have to give it a yank. I cant remember if theres velcro behind the headliner on those years or not.

It honestly feels like there's Velcro holding it up.

Well just carefully pull down on it and shine a flashlight in there and have a look. The Velcro that's used isn't normal Velcro. It's more of a hook and loop plastic Velcro that is extremely strong when it's together. When you put it back up, take note of where the Velcro is and push in that spot. You'll feel it hook together

No, well not easily. In all the years I've had to mess with headliners I've never had an issue. Pulling straight down, you'll fight with it. Start on one side and slide your hand between headliner and roof and that should peel it apart. Can you post pics of the inside so I can see what you have taken apart?

If it does have the hook and loop fastener behind there, which like I said, I cant remember if they used this stuff on those years or not, this is what it is. I think theres a better chance of having it if its an ext cab or quad cab.

Find someone with really small hands and skinny arms. I installed mine without dropping the headliner.
