    Default Lower headlining without creasing?

    Hi all



    This is following on from another post regarding my roof aerial being broken off I have a question about removing the headlining that may be missed in that post but I need some advice on - so sorry mods for making another thread!

    I need to lower the headlining to access the aerial base (my car is a facelift hatchback), I found the 'how 2' guide and have started to pull down the headlining (I removed the rear grab handles) but it seems to crease very very easily so I am scared to remove any more. I would need to pull it a fair way down to gain access easily to the base of the antenna.

    Is there a way to prevent it creasing while being lowered to access the aerial?

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    remove more trim, ie the c-pillar and if need be the b-pillar trim. the roof lining is very forgiving and the creases do disappear when put back.

    The bit that says Airbag isnt... thats just a clip you pull out.... The side airbag is a long rod which starts from the rear of the car across the top to the front A-pillar its similiar to a curtain rod, thus called curtain airbag

    Ah ok I see, would you have any instructions to remove the C & B pillar trims or can you point me to a thread that has it, I've been looking but can't find anything so far!

    Thanks!
