00-02 Saturn S-Series headliner removal
In this video I show you how the headliner board is removed from a 2002
Saturn SL2. This is part of the process to either replace the fabric on the
board or to work on the sunroof.
I unfortunately did not record the replacement of the fabric because I
butchered the install but there are many videos out there that will show
you how. The Sunroof is a project come spring.

this is a major procedure for this vehicle, I will not be responsible for
any damage or other mishaps that might occur should you decide to pursue
the repair after viewing this video. This video is intended to be for

In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2006 Saturn Ion. I take
viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while
showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues
to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start
it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of
this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the

seafoam at the end of the video (single bottle, 1 1/3 cups in the tank,
rest in the brake Booster).

Saturn SL2 Valve Cover Gasket Replacement (DOHC)
This is a long one, Sorry, but it pretty much goes through the step by step
and shows some of my mistakes so you don't make them.
Also, verify that the gasket fits. If you have the time then I would
suggest bringing the valve cover in with you(assuming you bought it from a
local parts store) and make sure it fits before leaving. I must have gotten
one from a bad batch because the first one was too big. You will see that
in the video. The second try was the right(ish) one. apparently it is a
known problem that the molding process is incorrect for these gaskets but
luckily they are rubber so you can just remold it to fit.
Also a word of caution: at some point you may see me use carburetor cleaner
on the plastic valve cover. DO NOT use carburetor cleaner on the plastic.
The main ingredient is Acetone(which I also use to clean) and it has the
ability to melt the plastic. Use another solvent that is friendly to
plastics like mineral spirits.
Good Luck and Hope this helps you save some money. Spent about $60 total
doing this in tools and parts.
