It's the glue they use to stick to headliner to either the body or the velcro (depending on where it is). Mine is right at the tip of the A-pillar on the passenger side and somewhat noticeable. They tried dying it out and said it's impossible to get rid of the stain, so I'm waiting on a new headliner to arrive.
I have it on A-pillar on passenger side, a little above window, and another spot above front window. All on passenger side.

My headliner vibrates ever so slightly right above my head and is quite annoying while driving or at stoplights. Is it worth getting this checked out or do you think dealers will do more harm than good trying to fix it?

I'll keep my eyes open for any stains - I do have a sunroof, though.

Got the headliner replaced. Looks great. I was worried since they had to take the seats out but I inspected it pretty well when I got it back.

Only one minor scratch on the drivers side door. Barely into the paint so I can buff it out fine.

I have a yellow spot on mine as well, I didn't show it to the dealer because I thought it might possibly have been caused by me. I do however have issues with the headliner not being glued down properly around the sunroof opening, and being lumpy there. I showed the salesperson, and compared with another on the lot. The others were lumpy as well, but were glued better, so I think they will fix it.
Mine is one of the old ones, built in Feb.
Does everyone with a sunroof have a lumpy headliner?

my car has all the same problems that you have all listed. Headliner that seems loose, very noisy and usually happens when the vehicle is "cold" or hasn't been driven, you know first thing in the morning. When the vehicle warms up, or the outside temperature increases, the noise seems to dissipate. That leads me to believe that the adhesive used is flawed and when it's cold, contraction makes the headliner squeek. As far as the stains, yes I have them on mine as well. Headliner has been "backordered" for a few weeks now.....way to go Ford......you know "quality is JOB 1" not!

Can someone post a picture of this? I'm curious to see what this looks like. Mine was built in April and seems fine to me. (Sedan, no moonroof)

I have several stains on mine.

I only seen one when I took it to the dealership a couple of weeks ago for some of their screw ups. They tried to get it out, but now it's just a yellow stain with a water ring around it.

After I got it back (wife picked it up) she said the stain was still there. I told her don't bother, I'll look at it. That evening I looked the headliner over really good, and seen several stains. The biggest one is right above the rear view mirror. I plan on taking it back in next week as I'm going on vacation, and plan to put many many miles on their loaner. :)

I took my car into the dealer to get sync updated to 2.11 and had them look at my headliner. They decided to replace it and ordered me a new one. I will try to take a pic of it tomorrow.
