New solution... Remove the seats, mask up everything you dont want to get spray adhesive on, and have your guy cover the headliner while its still in the camaro! Sorry best solution I could come up with!

The service manual stated to remove the passenger seat, recline the drivers seat, and with an assistant remove the head liner. I imagine you would have to bend the headliner some to get it out
yeah i read the same thing in the service manual.. i still dont see how its gonna come out even with the passenger removed, but i guess its possible if thats how they say to do it in the service manual.. i know this much.. the headliner was put in the car at the factory when the windshield was out..

This is what i do for a living i repair cars/ build them. The only way you can get it out w/o damaging it is removing either the front or back glass, your best bet is the front glass or i suppose you can fold it up and pull it out that way. But if someone did this the way the manual says to i would like to see a full post on how they did it and with out damaging it

what proof do you have that the headliner wont come like the manual says? did you try it by the manual? i myself dont see it coming out, even with the front seats out.. i dont see how it will even make the turn to pull out the door..

so when you did it by the manual and took the passenger seat out and put the drivers seat all the down, the headliner didnt come out at all?

ok look you asked for advice, i told what i got to work and what i couldnt get to work. If you can get it to work by going by the manual and managed to not damage the liner i would love to know how you got it to work. I couldnt get it to work so i do the easy/quick way in the industry im in time is money i fiddled with the whole seat thing and couldnt do it w/o damaging the headliner. thats my advice do what you will with it

hey sorry man, i didnt mean to get you pist.. i read the manual and talked to a service guy over at a chevy dealership that we deal with at the body shop i work at.. he said they dont know if it will come out if you go by the manual because they havent replaced a headliner in the new camaro yet.. thats why i asked you if you took the seat out when you tried..

just wanted to bump this thread and say that i got the headliner out of the car by just removing the passenger seat, putting the shifter in drive with the car off, putting the tilt on the steering wheel all the way down and being very careful.. so.. it is possible..
