Panel Covering?

Posted this on the Gulf Stream forum a few days ago but received no response, so will give a try here. All of the paneling/woodwork inside my 2001 Scenic Cruiser appears to be covered by a very thin white plastic like material. On the overhead cabinets behind the windshield, some of the covering has pulled/buckled away from the wood. Think it was caused from a water leak I haven't been able to locate and stop yet. I have no idea how it was originally attached to the wood. Glue, heat shrink or ?? Can press the covering back onto the wood but covering appears to have expanded a bit and will not fit smoothly. Looking for any thoughts or recommendations.

Many Thanks,

We have wallpapered paneling or a thin sheet of plywood. I have decided to paint the bedroom area.
We have areas that the wallpaper has come loose or it has ribbed or pulled away from the paneling. Not to sure about leaks as much as condensation as the cause. She is 32 years old.
I am cutting the areas out and then will take sheetrock mud to even out the cuts . A little sanding, Then use a latex primer and paint. It needs to be able to breath and oil based won't allow it as far as I know.
I thought about removing the wallpaper and use the paneling but then there is the glue residue.
I think or hope it turns out as planned.

There is a wallpaper you can buy that is specifically for painting over rough walls.
