Will a V70 headliner fit an 850

saw a decent v70 headliner and the one in my 850 wagon has to come out to replace the sunroof, are they exchangeable ?

You can take the sunroof out without removing the headliner. http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums ... 0393#30393

As far as the headliner goes I think it might. If you can check to make sure the grab handles, sun visors, and rear clips are all the same on both cars then I think you can reasonably assume the headliners can be swapped.

Yes. I put one in my car. Be sure to clean out the cabin fans.

I believe the climate control temperature sensor will not match. 850 has em in the headliner, V70 doesn't.

If I'm not wrong about that, you can probably make a cutout in the V70 headliner to match, but I'd look closely at both parts before taking the dive.

My sunroof has broken tracks so I have to drop the headliner- I will check it before I yank it out- I did pull my fans and clean the plug of crap out of them -luckilly a wagon so easier to pull the liner and it is half price at the yard

Did the V70 headliner fit into the 850? If so, how did you deal with the climate sensors by the front grab handles?

I need to replace my 850 Wagon headliner and wondering if this is still a good option.

Somebody ripped it up before I got to it, I recovered mine- not a good job I did it outside in the sun and the contact adhesive got all lumpy
