Hi pileolaayeni,


Replacing the shower doors is easy, here’s how.


(1)    First remove the old shower doors.


(2)    Next remove the top rail, this usually just sits on the side rails and is not in most cases screwed in place.

         You will have a cut and remove any caulk holding it in place.


(3)    Remove the screws holding the side rails in place and remove the side rails.


(4)    Finally remove any screws holding the bottom track in place and remove the bottom track.


(5)    Remove any old caulk and sealer and then you’re ready to install the new door.


(6)    Start the new door with the bottom track, cut it to fit and screw it into place. You can use a hack saw

          to cut the track and side rails.


(7)    Next cut and install the side rails


(8)    Finally cut and install the top rail


(9)    Sealing the door opening with fresh silicone caulk.


(10)  Finally hang the shower doors.
