    Typically, you lift them up and then away from the track, then down and out. If mirrored, they may be heavy so don't do it alone.

  • They are hung on a track, you can just lift them out carefully. Mirrors are heavy, best done by a big strong guy or two people. I would also tape the mirror side just in case of breakage. I took them out of my office years ago and replaced with curtains on a tension rod.

    Lift out doors. Lift Up first that should then release door from bottom rail.

    Not sure if you looking to remove the mirrors from the doors or the entire door unit. To remove the door simply lift up to remove the door from the bottom track and than down and out.

    Apply masking tape to the mirror surfaces. If the mirrors happen to break during removal, the tape will trap sharp mirror pieces.

    Lift the mirrored sliding doors from the upper and lower track. The method of removal varies depending on the type of door. Some can be removed by lifting the door straight up off the track, or some might require you to hold down a small lever. You can usually see how your doors are held in the track by standing in the closet and looking at the back of the upper door track.

    If new closet doors are not in your budget, you can change the look of your mirrored closet doors by covering the mirror with fabric or veneer. Before removing your mirrored closet doors and tracks, visit your local home improvement store to determine if they carry replacement doors that could fit your existing tracks.

    Never remove mirrored doors without protecting your hands and covering the mirrored surface. Mirrors can shatter easily when bent or jolted, and the broken pieces are as sharp as broken glass.
