The upper track the glass slides in is deeper than the bottom track. This allows the glass to be slipped up and lowered into the bottom track
There may have never been any hardware and the doors just by-passed each other, held in by grooves or small pieces of trim at the top and bottom. Try tilting the door up (into the groove or behind the trim). Push the bottom in and set it down into the bottom groove or behind the trim.
Seth is correct. A lot of cabinet sliding glass doors never had any hardware for a clean look. Sometimes a groove was ground into one side for fingers.
We had a bed with these kind of doors in the headboard, they were held in place by a groove and were easily removable.
It is actually not glass, but rather teak. I will try what you guys suggest. There might have been this little piece of metal about 3 inches long and a quarter inch wide and very thin that was rounded and stuck somewhere. Does that sound like anything you’ve ever seen?.Item was probably made in the early 1960s.
Do the same to replace the door, hope this helps you out
Here's an article that might help https://www.familyhandyman.com/project/kitchen-cabinets-9-easy-repairs/
I would get barn door style hardware and put both of the doors on one of those.
There likely isn't enough width on the top edge to mount barn door hardware. Besides, this look is not characteristic to the doors on mid-century stereo cabinets. If you are wanting to retire the cabinet, I would not recommend this suggestion.
I am attaching a picture of the door. Can you see at the very very top in the middle there is a little rounded piece of metal? Is this necessary for me to fix the doors?
You would need to lift the door until it reaches the top of the track for the door and then drop it into the bottom track. That how they do it!
