you cant really you have to take it out and put up new fabric wit the foam backing. Just had to do this in my other car, what happens is the glue comes off the foam and the fabric falls down. You cant just glue the fabric back on cause it will look like hell. It needs to have the foam backing. Jo-ann fabrics has some and get a can of high strength headliner glue and go at it. Gotta take all out of the car though

Do you know about how much the headliner with the foam costs approx? Do you know what a pro shop would charge me?

ya it realy doesnt matter that much.... you dont need the foam backing but it does help smooth out any imperfections. but not needed. i didnt put it on my roof but my headliner was not bad i just didnt like the looks of it so i glued my tweed right ontop of it.
and IMO you dont even need to use those rear 2 clips. if i had not already punched the holes for them i would have left mine out. it doesnt look like they would hold anything up at least not to hurt anything if you dont reuse them.

just get some good headliner glue and spray on BOTH the headliner and your new fabric and give it a minute for the glue to tack up then put the two together. if you dont wait the wet glue will soak RIGHT THRU the new fabric and give you a hard exterior crusty fabric! basically youd be pushing the wet glue thru the fabric when you push it to the headliner board.
