Headliner removal I am trying to find information on how to remove my headliner because of a strange knocking noise i am hearing on my roof when i encounter bumps or am driving on a rough road. I already checked the roof rack and it is secure. Is there any special instructions for removal I should be aware of before I start and will I be able to place the same headliner back up when done as long as i do not damage it?


This is not an easy repair w/o damaging the headliner. There is nothing up there except maybe a roof brace. Check the luggae rack again by trying to move all the peices. One must be loose.\015\012there are 27 steps!\015\012If equipped, re ... 2002 Ford Explorer

I have a '91 Jimmy and when I am in 2 wheel drive I hear a rattling and slight grinding noise. I believe its from the transfer case. I used to hear this noise after coming out of 4 wheel drive, but then it went away. Now the noise is back, but isn't there if I am in 4 wheel drive. Is there a gear that's rubbing inside the case when I am in 2 wheel drive? Could the gear be slipping into 4 wheel drive? Whats keeping it from slipping into 4 wheel drive? Will adjusting the 2-4 wheel drive lever fix

I have a 2008 mustang gt. Due to many advances to the engine I changed the gears to 4:10s and added a 3000 stall converter. I drive the car every once in a while. Recently the car has been acting funny. I believe that it is a converter issue. When I put it in drive or reverse I can hear a noise that sounds like something is loose under the car. When I return to neutral or park the noise goes away. When I drive the car I can hear the noise at idle speed however it goes away when I speed up or am

While driving around 40 mph I hear a banging type sound. Just started yesterday. I have a 2003 two wheel drive Z66 Avalanche with 103,000 miles.

The noise does not appear again until I let it sit for a bit (like overnight or sitting all day at work) then go to drive it again.

Noise When driving on the highway, there is a loud noise. It is consistent and has the same rhythm as the wheels turning. It is not a clatetering sound, but a smooth noise.

Hello, I purchased a 2003 Hyundai XG350 last month. When I start the car, put AC or defrost on, and then start driving there is a screeching noise that lasts for 10 seconds and then goes away. If I stop the car and then restart within roughly 30 minutes, I do not hear the screeching noise. If I leave the car off for about 30-45 minutes, the noise returns the next time I start the car and start driving. The dealer has replaced the serpentine belt, but still the screeching noise is there. Thank yo
