Default WTB: small plastic cover in headliner, 928.555.355.02

Want to buy one small plastic cover that goes over the bolts for the roof hatch, the PO seems to have lost one of them.(in addition to severly warp the headliner at the rear)

Part number 928.555.355.02

Don't have clips but here is a link to another forum for a DIY headliner recover. The owner uses metal straps to address the warping and looks like it work well from the pics. I plan/need to do this as well.

Nice, thanks! Just got the headliner out, so I'll have a look at it tonight to see how I can fix it. It's severly warped both in the front and the back, but perhaps it's possible to make the board wet, and "bend"/force it back to it's original shape? Going to try, atleast.

if the roof liner is warped then the chances are pretty good that the hatch seal is leaking.
To fix the hatch seal first remove the rear sun visors then the top hatch trim panel about 5 clips hold it in place.
Remove the seal starting at the hatch lock scrub the seal with simple green and a scrub brush rinse off.
let it sit in the sun for a few hours to reform.
Clean the metal ridge on the car remove all of the dirt from the top edge.
get some Hondabond and with a plastic tube attached ( injection tube is like the one that comes with a tube of RTV)
to the tip of the Hondabond, inject a bead of sealant into the seal you have to work quickly so the Bond wont be too setup prior to installing it .
Note how the seal has to fit over the wire harness to the hatch press it firmly into place,
smear some Dowcorning 111 on the outer edges of the seal to keep the rubber soft.
Refit the the trim and visors

LOL! Just had that one out yesterday to glue on the leather that's slipping, and put it back on this morning... Well, thanks for the tip! It's raining today, so a good chance to see if it leaks. Probably, it does.

You may need the location clips as well
