Hello Pedrina and welcome to the Community.


The method need to remove a glued on track would depend on a few variables.  What is the surface material that the track is glued on? Porcelain, fiberglass, etc.?  What kind of glue or is it silicone? 


If the surface is porcelain, you could heat up the track with a hair dryer or a heat gun for a brief time to soften the adhesive and pry off with a flat bar.


Then using a paint scrapper remove the residual glue.

You can also try applying a small amount of denatured alcohol or mineral spirits to the glue film and scrap or rub off.  Test in the least conspicuous location because the surface may discolor.  If you know what kind of glue that was used, you can contact the manufacture and ask what they recommend using to remove the glue.


If the surface is something other than porcelain, heating it would not be a good idea.  You should contact the shower or tub manufacturer for their recommendation.


Thank you for your inquiry.
