Deftmetal The glassmaker used a kit to re cover the headliner in his Mazda 6 and it seemed to turn out pretty good. The problem with headliner stains is the foam backing, it holds stains and breaks down easily.

SilverPony2001 Couldn't you take it to a detail shop, and see if they could get it out? They would probably have the most experience with this type of problem.

e30og hate to resurrect a dead thread but I will be ripping this mother out and re-upholstering it in the future, hopefully sooner than later. every so often there are more and more that show up and I cannot stand it anymore. Unfortunately the ST's black one is only in HB shape, not to mention its almost a grand

GoldenHour you could dye it a darker color -- black.

noahsfocus No expert here but seems any water or water based cleaning methods will make it worse and leave horrible stains. This headliner is the worst material ever. Someday I hope to get a custom leather headliner installed or something other then the stock one. All headliners.accumulate road grime after time and need cleaning. Impossible to do with this one. Have to replace it and I wouldn't want another stock one that's forsure!

Dysan911 be-careful. I used a little damp microfiber towel once and it left a water stain where I tried cleaning. I was told you should use some woolite to clean spots on the headliner but I've never tried it yet.

e30og Try a tide pen or something simple like hot water on a very small section and see if it helps

SA-focus man i was thinking they were just surface stains from dirt or whatever else they got their hands on. but i dont want to make it worse than what it is so ill probably leave it alone. thanks for the input.

hotleadsingerguy Mine came with a stain and Ford couldn't fix it. They attempted to order a new one and Ford denied the claim saying "User-caused issue". It never got cleaned, no matter how hard I or the dealership tried.

Whatever that headliner is made of, it sucks up stains and keeps them forever.

PratoN I wouldn't touch it if I were you...

My dealership tried to clean the stain (is that link still working?):
