Adhesive for foam blocks in the headliner can fail leading to poor fitment of the headliner and a possible rattle around the sunroof area. The foam blocks attach the headliner to the mounting brackets. Access the headliner and re-secure the foam blocks to the brackets using cable ties / zip ties.

    After dealer insisted nothing was wrong, I took him for a ride. Oh!!!! Now they got it - and they fixed it; it was nothing, but it rattled for over a year before I could get them to fix it.

    I had a rattle coming from headliner.Narrowed it down between front and rear sunroof.It was the plastic retainers.I put cloth sided tape between retainer and metal bracket it attached to.This stopped this rattle.Now i have one coming from drivers side dash area.

    Squeaks when the radio is loud or hit bumps....sounds more like a chirping noise...it stops if I press it up by the passenger visor and appy pressure with my hand

    Headliner is falling down over 2nd row of seats. Ford is definitely responsible for design error that is causing this problem. Ford needs to recall so that we keep faith in the Ford Motor Corp.

    Rear headliner falling down on Ford Edge. Looks like the design was to attach headliner with thick "double sided tape" foam blocks to two metal brackets (at least in the rear of the car). I can't believe this is the final way Ford designers came up with attaching this as over time, this was going to happen no matter the environmental conditions. I haven't corrected the issue yet, and would appreciate any suggestions if anyone has corrected this problem.
