Default Replacing door fabric

Hi, new to the forum, I have a 2003 Golf GL 2 door. The black fabric trim on the door cards is falling off due to the foam bonding it to the door card crapping out. Has anyone ever replaced thiers? It looks like headliner fabric, I'm just not sure how to get it covered without wrinkles. Any suggestions? I did find the great diy on how to remove the door cards. Thanks in advance.

Goto a scrap yard and see if there is a car with the same interior in reasonable shape.

it is fairly easy to do. your remove the door panels and then you will see the door panel peice which has the fabric on it. you will have to pop it off of the panel, vw glued it on. you will see where it is attached it is usaully blue. remove is and pull off the old fabric and foam and replace with new foam and fabric of your choice.

Could be a good time to do a headliner change as well. Lots of nice fabric choices out there. Gl!

i actually replaced all 4 of my door's liners last month. The back doors came out looking extremely smooth, but the front doors gave me problems. The front doors came out with folds on them so they don't look too good...just make sure you don't mind folds before you do it, i really don't think there is a way around it.
