      Planning on tackling this project very soon. Have about 95% of the pieces needed to convert my interior from Grey to Black. Will definitely be using this thread in addition to my bentley to pull it off. Hopefully it goes smoothly!!!

      You guys know a bent coat hanger in a loop works better than both the oem tool and a dental pick?
      Got the bitch clip out in 2 seconds, just loop and yank.

      Be very careful not to poke and yank your airbag along with it.

      I am working on fixing my antenna so found this thread to help with removing everything. Putting it all back together is definitely proving to be a challenge. Getting the bitch clips back in, and then getting the curved rear of the headliner over the metal shelf underneath the roof is next to impossible. I get part on and start working my way to the other side, and the part I just put on, comes off... Also, the end of the headliner is starting to separate (foam/plastic/cloth coming apart) because sometimes I'm not getting the whole thing over the metal shelf. Tips anyone??? Please???

      It's a 2002 Jetta TDI
