Has anyone or does anyone know how to remove the headliner in the coupe? I tried a search and could not find anything. Any DIY instructions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.[:D]

I have, its fairly easy, just take your time. The hardest is the B-pillars.

- pull A pillars off
- unscrew visors
- pop out vanity lights
- remove lense on overhead light behind mirror
- pull tabs to release front overhead light fixture
- pop cover off rear-view mirror base
- remove rear-view mirror (might snap in place, might have a screw, I forget)
- remove SRS badges
- remove grab handles, pull out 2 tabs inside, then pull handle to remove
- pop out rear overhead light
- remove hatch cargo cover
- remove hatch cargo cover shelf on either side, remove rubber near rear of shelf to expose a screw, look under shelf for other screws, pull to remove
- loosen rear seat belts, find bolt on lower part of seat belt under the seat bottoms
- remove C-pillars, there's clips under the weather stripping, remove back to front
- loosen front seat belts from B-pillars, pop off cover on belt holder, remove screw
- remove B-pillar, remove clips from under weather stripping, pull HARD towards back of car
- headliner should be free now except for a few wires and clips

I'm going to attempt this in a couple of weeks when I'm back home. I am an amateur mechanic so I hope it is easier then it sounds. Thanks for the info.
