    Does the factory assembly manual show anything? Looking at some pictures I found it looks like you need to first remove the sun visors, Then, in order, the side windshield pillar mouldings, the side mouldings then the top windshield moulding. You may need to loosen the screws on the rear halo moulding and maybe loosen or remove the screws in the dome light to allow for the headliner to be pulled out and the new one inserted. Then replace the top w/s moulding and retighten it and the halo after you get the headliner aligned front to back and side to side. Then install the side mouldings, pillar mouldings and visors and dome light. It doesn't appear that there is any adhesive from these pictures. The assembly manual will show it if there is.
