I've tried spray adhesive on mine. Unfortunately it is only a
temporary solution - a few days to a few weeks at best. The headlining
material is a thin (and very fragile) material bonded to a foam rubber
backing. When it starts to sag, it is because the foam has started to
collaps, and it seems there is no going back once it has started.
Replacing the headliner is nearly at the top of my 'to do' list over
the next few weeks. But I'm sure glad I have an estate.
