go to walmart, buy a can of like carpet cleaner stuff. idk what its called, but its red and has a scrubby brush on the top of the spray can. get some spot cleaner, and spray the seats(i did my carpet too) let it soak for a little while. then spray the seats with the spray cleaner and scrub scrub scrub. then use a shop vac and suck everything out.

I'm too lazy to go outside now and take one. Listening to smashing pumpkins and drinking orange juice.

i have the 2002 fx4 seats aka the jaguar looking pattern and it looks similar to the material as the ones in the edge. I have a can of this Blue Coral upholstry cleaner. It too has a scrub brush thing on top, which sucks, but the cleaner does an ok job. It's the only thing i've ever used so there is probably something better out there.

Need to clean the interior (badly) of my 98 Ranger. I've cleaned carpets and seats before so I have a plan there, but How do I clean the cloth-covered headliner?

Can I take it out, or is it bonded to a cheap shell like GM did?

I believe it's bonded, which is normal for vehicles, however, to clean, you're going to need a steam cleaner, and i don't mean one of those things listed at the start of this thread, which uses steam at no point during it's operation.

Getting the headliner wet will make a mess of the glue holding it up, hence the need for a steam cleaner to clean it.

Interesting, just found replacement kits for DIY covering on Ebay, reasonably priced.

They cover all years of Rangers. Think I'd rather go that route.
