Where, exactly, is it drooping?
Since my last post I have learned a lot about the W463 headliner. Quite a bit can be repaired in place.

A professional steamer will be your friend for in place repairs.

The most common W463 problem is a sag in the backer just behind the sunroof.
This is caused by the double stick tape that holds the mushroom-head Velcro (what is that stuff really called) coming loose. Getting in there successfully to install new double stick tape is unlikely. I think that construction adhesive and clamping would hold it nicely. If the headliner needs removal later it shouldn't be too hard to cut the adhesive.

It has hook and loop type already in place (its hook and hook) if i m not mistaken sometime they come dis-attached? They re a bit hard to push back together but stay once connected in my experience (at least so far for me)
