Ha anyone replaced the cloth material or inside lining from the sealing on a 1995 525i touring wagon? How does it come off?

I went to a shop and had it done for $220. Looks brand new and the work was done verry well...

I cant find the e34 specific one. This one is e36 but the process is similar.

tourings are easier... if the sunroof works.

I also need to do this...the whole rear of mine is completely unglued and saggy. I want to find an interesting fabric and do something "different"...in a tasteful way. I will also do the sunroof, and pillars...if you do yours would you mind snapping a few pics so I know what to expect in taking mine off?

Cheers!

note: it must be 1/4" foambacked fabric or you will damaged the double sunroof due to excessive pressure and drag.

I am going to try a 3/8" fabric when i do mine, if that works it will save us all a LOT o money, as euro headliner fabric is very expensive ($30+ per yard)

Was it a BMW shop or what? Sounds way too reasonable for a dealer.

No, it was definitely not the dealer. It was an independent Auto Upholstery shop.
