How much will it cost to fix a car roof lining?

I live in Portland and last summer we experienced an extreme heatwave. My car roof lining has been sagging ever since, but I’ve put off repairs due to potential repair costs. How does it cost to fix a car roof lining?

can add up, so don’t feel bad for putting it off.
It typically costs between $150 and $450 to fix a car roof lining, depending on your vehicle’s size, labor costs, and the materials needed to complete the job. Luckily, you can put off replacing your car liner with these cheap DIY fixes:
  • Use double-sided tape to affix the fabric lining to the interior backing of your car’s roof.
  • Use a spray glue to glue the liner back into place.
  • Press thumbtacks into the sagging parts of the roof liner.
  • Using a steamer to reheat the liner’s adhesive, which may allow you to reattach it.
