Default roof leak

I have sealed and resealed the 3rd light twice on my 2009 xl f150. So, headliner removal time. How do I get the clothes hooks in the back of the liner to release? The visor bolts I got figured out.

I have the leaking problem on my 2011 F-150. I've had the truck for 7 years and it just started. I see many notes in this forum of the same problem, but haven't seen any fixes? It leaks at the back corner and there is a strap on the outside, it looks like there's a rivet holding the strap, will a dealership fix this without charging?

I doubt they'll fix it for free.

Do this first --- get a bucket of soapy water. Close the windows and put the fan on high. Be sure to NOT have recirculating air on. Pour some of the soapy water over the 3rd brake light, satellite antenna if you have it, and the perimeter of the rear window. One of those three places is leaking and, then you get the soapy water on it, your truck will start blowing bubbles from where it is leaking.

Mine ended up being the rear window seal. I had to take the ceiling out and caulk around the inside of the back window.
