Hello,
i believe duo the hot weather here in Saudi Arabia my 2014 Touareg leather lining (pic) started to come off.
this is the piece of leather attached to the door from inside.

Also the roof lining started to sag.
Not sure if anyone has a quick fix.
Thanks
Mohamed

Sorry but I don't believe you are being very helpful. If you have nothing useful to say because you don't believe the poster is worth your effort and will not follow your advice ( e.g. like on brake discs) then you don't need to say anything at all. A respectful question was asked and it deserves a respectful answer as this is what this forum is for IMHO, not to flame people whose opinions you may differ with

Head line sagging and leather deterioration are both common problems in hot climates due generally to the adhesives failing. How you choose to repair depends on how much money you want to spend. An auto trim specialist should be able to do a perfect repair at a cost. Careful peeling back and re gluing in the areas needed with a suitable contact adhesive should work but it may not look perfect depending on how good you are at this sort of work and how deteriorated the actual leather or head lining fabric is. I had an old XJ6 Jag here in Australia which suffered from both these problems and I could do acceptable repairs myself

cheers

Similar problem on mine when I got it with large air bubbles under the leather on the door card appearing in the heat of the sun. Only decent fix was to change the door card I’m afraid

The poster has no practical experience in respect of the problems he has posted and to get the job done properly I think he is best advised to get professional help rather than attempt a repair himself as, indeed, would I.

You only get practical experience by being practical and trying to do it yourself unfortunately. If you always hand over your problems to the "experts" you never learn much from your own many failures and sometimes successes

Unfortunately, not everyone has the talent, means or access to be practical and to maintain our vehicles in the order which they deserve
Experts are sometimes the only resource in the limited circumstances which some owners may find themselves
Life being life, the experts have to learn too and may not get a fix right 1st (sometimes even 2nd or 3rd) time
This is where forums and owners experiences and solutions usually are sought 😣

Under normal circumstances I agree with you, Rohan, though I'd be asking some very pertinent questions of anyone attempting a V10 rebuild!

I see elsewhere you've asked the question about brake disc thickness again, something that a number of folk (including you, I think) recommended way back but since that fairly simple task couldn't be undertaken by either the owner or the chosen workshop I took the view that the member is, in this case, probably better steered towards more expert help (and, note, not a dealer!) rather than attempting his own DIY.

I believe there are some excellent leather workers in the OP's part of the world who could probably do an excellent repair or even renewal quite economically.

Hello,
Thank you very much for that information. I too, dont believe there is an easy fix that can fix the problem well.
However, i will try again here in my country and see if there also other ways to fix this.
Thank you

Hello NoobyT,
No worries, I did not get offense or felt anything. We have different opinions on how we do things. I respect that.

There is plenty of advice and expertise available here and some have strong opinions on issues. At the end of the day we are all here to help each other on a common interest. A sense of humour also helps on occasions 👍
