Shower doors

On our shower we have triple sliding glass doors on the shower. The outer door is dropping loose from the top holder. The top holder is an aluminum guide with rollers. The bottom just floats in a track. The glass panel is 15" wide X 66" high.
Anyone have had a problem with the glass coming out of the top holder? Any idea how do I fix this.

Usually the rollers can be adjusted so the door is level and so the door is at the right height - not dragging on the bottom but low enough to not slip out of the track.

There is a screw that is loosened and the roller can be slid one way or the other in a angled slot.

I guess I should have said, The glass is sliding down out of the holder. It's an upside down U shape with rubber over the glass. The glass in dropping but the rubber is staying in place.
Thanks for the tip on the adjustment.

Check to see if there is a set screw in the u shaped channel. Most of the ones I worked on had a screw to hold them in place. The pressed in place ones, I CLEANED THROUGHLY the rubber and channel and glued with instant glue.

Most of the doors are held together at the corners with a set screw. It may only be loose. It may have a hole that is enlarged and replacing the screw with a larger one may work as well. Some of the frames may use a plastic press fitted corner piece. You may be able to find replacements at your camper dealer parts store. Then again, you may need to improvise!

I looked. No set screw on any of the three doors. My local Lowe's said take it apart and use silcone to glue the glass to the rubber and the rubber to the aluminum. Have to do it all at once as it all needs to set up together.
After a couple of days I'll hang the doors back up. Am hoping the silicone will hold the glass in place.

I don't have a problem with the door seperating I just can't keep the door on the track. I put new wheels on and adjusted it and it always seems to fall of the track while traveling. I secure it with the straps and even put a spacer between the doors but low and behold I have to put it back on when we park. Maybe I'm just to rough of a driver but then why do I get those funny hand signals with the 1 finger from all those cars.

Use Dap "kitchen and bath adhesive caulk" made for sealing around tubs/showers/sinks. Once it dries I doubt anything will break it loose. Available at Lowes

Just a follow up.
I took the doors off. Took the top channel off the one door where the glass was coming out. There is a rubber U shaped gasket that fits between the top channel & the glass. I used paint thinner to clean everything. I used silicone on the top & top side of the glass, put the rubber U shaped gasket on then put the top channel on. Tapped it all down with a wood block on top of the channel and used a rubber mallet the tap it all down. Let it sit for two days & put it all back to gether.
This has held for lots of miles, some on rough roads without the glass coming out. Guess this was a good fix.
