    Default Removing a Sliding Shower Door

    Our shower door in our 2 year old son's bathroom is set up in such a way that we cannot reach him and the faucet at the same time to give him a bath. We would like to remove the sliding shower door. I believe it is held to the tub with adhesive and then screwed into the wall.

    Does anyone have any knowledge/suggestions about how to go about removing it? Is there any kind of product to plug up the screw holes in the tile or would we need to retile those portions?

    Thanks !

    I'm sure I'm missing something, but every sliding shower door I've seen is lifted up to remove it from the track at the head.
    You're still left with the track at the bottom which is tough to sit on or lean against, but at least the doors are out of the way for kid bathing duties.

    I'd be inclined to only remove the doors and leave the tracks. It won't be but a couple years before:
    1 - The child is old enough to bathe/shower on his own
    2 - You'll be selling the home, shower doors are much better than curtains.

    The doors can be easily stowed in the rafters of the garage.

    If you absolutely must remove the track, it's a simple process. Remove the screws securing the head track and remove track. Remove screws holding side tracks, cut caulk, remove track. Cut caulk holding bottom track to tub, remove track.

    You'll need to sc**** the remnants of caulk off with a single edged razor. There will likely be plastic wall anchors in the tile, remove them or clip the head off and push them into the wall. The remaining hole can be filled with caulk or the caps that Gizmo suggested.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
