    I don't even know what they're called to properly search for it. I get a ton of stuff about headliner, and door panels, but nothing about this rubber piece with fabring sagging all around my headliner. Why did this happen? Heat? Cold? Warped? What is it called, how to fix it? Samsung...

    I have the infamous sagging door card fabric and ideally would like to put a sort of padded "leather" where the padded fabric is now. I have heard this process is a real PITA but i will not accept bringing the door cards to an upholstery shop. I have heard that some people just paint on the...

    My wife has a 2009 VW CC Luxury... lovely car BTW! Anyways, her sunroof has the roll-up mesh sunvisor/shade. It's coming off the track, sagging on one side, and getting difficult of open. We live in Florida, so having that mesh helps cut the afternoon sun otherwise I'd remove it completely...

    1999 1.8turbo Passat. My sunroof is leaking when rains. How to replace the seals? Can I do myself? Is there any way to clean the drain hoses?

    Anyone find an easy fix for the sagging door panel issue? I have a '00 Passat and all 4 doors having the infamous "sagging cloth" issue. I see a lot of posts about this and wondering if anyone found a cheap easy fix for it. Maybe "fix" is not the right word. I'm not too picky about the car so...

    My driver door sags a little bit once I open it. It sags to the point there are wear marks on the sill from the door slightly rubbing. Is there a way to fix it so the door is like its supposed to be ? Any DIY's for this problem ? :confused: :confused:

    i just noticed the other day, the leather on my door is starting to sag, like it came loose. its on the part above where the window switches are, but towards the back. are there any easy fixes for this? something that doesn't involve tearing apart the entire door and redoing everything? thanks.

    B5.5 door panel, the cloth has come loose. Was considering doing some fiberglass work (actuall cutting, reglueing and adding resin, no real need for the glass) anybody have any better ideas? any pictures if anybody has done this?

    The fabric / cloth covering on my 99's door cards, above the armrests, is sagging. The back doors are the worst but the fronts are starting to do it too. It's like the adhesive inside has degraded and it's just come loose from the backing and is sagging down. Is this a common problem? What's...

    18 months ago I installed Neuspeed Sport springs w/ Bilstein Sport shocks from the group buy and now the passenger front is sagging by 0.5". Will I have to replace both or only one of them (which?) or could I possibly simply adjust the shock to a higher perch (the fronts are adjustable)?

    Drivers door has some up/down play in it. Upon quick inspection did not see what needs to be tightened. Any input? Thanks.

    H&R Sports + Bilsteins Sports= the sex P.S. The fronts are on the second to lowest setting and use all B5 (not 5.5) hardware. This is the fourth suspension on this car (finally got it right) and it's tenth set of wheels. What a whore... :D Before: Now the B5 with the...

    The heat finally won out and a foot or more of the farbic trim strip came unglued. Straight pins hold it up for now but glue what have you guys used with good long-term results? Thanks! Scott

    OK, so I've noticed my back end (OK, not mine, but my car's) is sitting low - noticeably lower than the front. I've also been bottoming out with passengers in the rear. I have a stock setup, so what should I replace to get the car sitting corretly again? Thanks!

    My door inserts are sagging badly (cloth). Any of you guys know of a way to tighten them up or should I just get them redone professionally? Thanks. Chris.

    Two or three years ago I had the cloth trim around the drivers side door re-glued by the dealer and it has held up well. Yesterday I noticed the same problem on the passenger side. The drivers side was repaired under warranty. Has VW owned up to this problem or do I pay for the passenger side...

    You know...the trim around the doors. TIA!
