broken closet door

The latch on my sliding glass closet door broke, the door slid in transit and cracked the glass. I ordered a new door but am unsure how to replace it. Does the front closet door have to come off first? It looks like the trim panel on the outside would have to come off to be able to swing the doors out far enough to remove them from the track, however I believe the panel is glued as well as screwed in. Thought I might get some advise before I tear the thing apart.

look at the upper slides. You should find two screws in each. Take them out and the door will fall out. After replacing about four of those chinzy plastic latches, I cured mine with a couple of barrel latches.

On mine there are two nylon latch/sliders on each door on the bottom. The nylon part needs to be slid up to release the bottom of the door from the track. They are kind of tight but will snap up. Then just pull the bottom of the door out a bit and lift the top rollers out of the track. Piece of cake.

Another quick fix is to purchase one of those slide window locks and place it on the track when breaking camp. They use thumb screws so they go on and off very easy. It might save you a few bucks.

Thanks for responding. I got the new door on and that cheapo plastic latch. I put a clamp on the upper track for traveling so if the latch breaks the door won't slide.
