#1 Series 1 2+2 Headlining Question

Post by Collfryn » Mon Nov 11, 2019 7:26 pm

Interior refit kit arrives in the next few days and I'm looking at tackling the headlining on my Series 1 2+2. Bought the car fully disassembled and looking at the parts inventory I find I'm missing BD29352 and BD29353 rear right and left headliner grippers which I will have to purchase. I'm in the dark about how and where they fit. These parts are specific to the 2+2 and all the videos and blogs I've looked at only show fitting the lining to the FHC. Has any one fitted these parts to their 2+2 and can they tell me when they go in during the headlining install. Many thanks

At the back, either side of the interior lamp IIRC.

Unless you still have the fragile fibre board you may find they aren’t needed when gluing sponge-backed headliner to the roof.

Got it. Thanks Peter. Looks like these parts are out of production anyway so I'll try without.
