    Great link there Jim, a lot more cost effective than buying new, which is out of stock at vwheritage now anyways..

    I take it lifting the old fabric, spraying the adhesive and laying back down isn't an option? Has anyone had a go at this? Suppose the foam won't be in the best of states underneath perhaps..

    How did it go removing the old fabric / foam? Did you use any special tools/liquids?

    Also how did you go about trimming? Trace the shape on the fabric / measure and mark up or glue down in one piece and trim from the other side?

    Can anyone comment on colour match of the light grey colour?

    I've done this job earlier this year. Fabric came from AS Trims and I chose light grey which was a perfect match to the oem sunroof material.

    Once removed from the car I manually scraped the glue residue off.

    Then cut the new fabric to shape, glued it starting from the back end of the liner to the front. Once all glued I then cut out the sunroof and around the sun visor mounts. I used a glue gun the glue back the sides.

    Once all of that was done I turned it over and left it rest overnight and installed in the car the next day.

    Originally I thought it would be a difficult job but actually it was really easy, including the removal and refitting.
