Yes, I pulled the whole sunroof assy out of the V8, and replaced the
whole liner on it. I really didn't see a way just to replace it on the
flap, unless it is out of the car. IOW, I don't think you can replace
it on the car.

If you need further advice on this, let me know. I also think I took
pics alongg the way. It did take a bit of time, though.
