Is there a DIY headliner removal for e93?

I have a rattle in the rear 1/4 panel c-pilar area behind my head on the driver side. Would like to remove it to inspect. TIA

I have the same issue. Were you able to figure out what caused the rattle and if so, how did you fix it?

Took everything apart that I could and was not able to fix the rattling. Isolated to the mechanical part of vert area around the c - pillar and pretty much gave up. I sold the car due to the rattling issue. Currently looking for a '13 coupe or f82...yes it bothered me that much I had to sell it.

I have a rattle near the B pillar (where the windows meet). It's driving me nuts!

I have had this issue multiple times as well. I have taken it into the dealer 3-4 times to have this fixed (luckily my factory warranty doesn't expire until 08/15) and they say its the actuator/piston that latches the roof to the car. I know that was a terrible explanation but as soon as it stops raining, I will run out and grab the mechanics notes and post them up on here.

Either way, they have tightened it up 3-4 times and if I did not have a warranty, it would have cost me ~$1,300 each time. It definitely solves the issue but if you drive over roughish roads, it will come back. It has just now started to come back to the point of me wanting to take the car back in but need some advice on how to approach my SA (he's been great so far but I want to explain to him that the car will be out of warranty 9 months, that this is a reoccurring problem that has been documented many times with my car, and its ridiculously expensive for a rattle fix). There has to be a permanent solution to this. Do I try to elevate to BMWNA for a replacement roof, Lemon, etc?
