You have to replace it. Spray all the crap you want up there - it is the foam part that disentegrates and then causes the headliner to sag. You need to remove the headliner board remove the fabric and clean / scrape the board of all material. And then either cover it or have it recovered by a pro. Or you can take it to a pro from the start (more $$ imo).

There is no magic glue.

How did you clean the headliner board without removing it from the car?

FYI: I have done this myself - I am not just speaking from other's experiences.

Just as a side note, 3M is most definitely not crap.

Just miss used. It's like saying a hammer is crap because it wasn't good at taking a Roundel off.

hmm didn't know you took it out of the car.

The fabric is un-usable after it is remove really. I would think you would have a really hard time recovering the headliner board with the old fabric. My old fabric was a mess by the time I stripped everything.
