2003 Alpine Mirror Bedroom closet doors

I have a 2003 38FDDS Alpine and in the bedroom slide on drivers side, there's the sliding mirror closet doors. The corners are loose and it keeps coming off track. I had the dealer look at it with new hardware ,he said its not going to hold. Does anyone know where you can get new doors to fit this. I don't know who made these for Alpine. I checked with Lowes and there's is to tall. I was hoping someone else has been here. I tried to go though the back threads didn't find anything about replacing for that year. These do not have the air slide.

So far the cheapest replacement mirror I found no labor is 400 dollars. I think I have found one used. He has not called and made sure about cracks. Also those are glued in on the ends. Then plywood strips is glue on each end on back

I had great success with taking the entire glass, rubber gaskets and frame apart in our 02 and reassembling. Doors became square and solid. I would definitely try this first.

I replaced the mirror on mine. Take it off and take the whole thing with frame to a glass company. Mine was about $95 and they will rebuild the frame and all.

Thanks Rusty and everyone. I found a used one and they have not returned my call. I'm going to try what you said Rusty and see what price I get. I price just the mirror and it wasn't unsale. But it was a plastic mirror. So I'm going to look around at the mirror company's and see what they say.
Thanks everyone

I have 2004 my closet is in the rear.my handles have broken many times. I finely fixed it by drilling holes in the base metal and when we travel I put some metal clips in the holes to keep the mirrors from sliding back and fourth when going down the road.
