Headliner falling down

The fabric headliner on my 1996 Ranger XL is sagging from the ceiling. Is there any way to re-attach it without removing it? Should I just replace it with something? If so, what?

I have the same problem with the headliner right now I just have push pins holding the headliner up. Try headliner spray adhesive.

Have to remove it and use spray adhesive.

Although in an old full size chevy truck I made some nice wood trim pieces and ran them side to side from door to door across the middle of the cab, lol.
Actually didn't look to bad, dash and doors had the fake wood already.

The 3M High Performance Contact Adhesive #1357 is a good stuff. I used it before and had no problems.

Had the same problem with my 2006. Headliner was separated from the backing. Had a local interior shop replace the headliner for $150. Did an awesome job looks like new. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and get it done right.
