I didn't have trouble with the parcel shelf, rather the metal supports on the sides of the parcel shelf in the trunk. I now have another 4-door and I would only consider replacing the headliner after I took the rear window out. Plus, I could replace that chrome window lock strip that always fades. Just my two cents worth. Sam
