Pocket Door

Anyone out there have a pocket door in their GS? Mine is starting to split the tract that it rides on. I would like to do the repair myself rather than be soaked with a big bill. The pocket door fits in between the wall next to the shower and a pantry/closet. I would like to remove the pantry and take down the wall to access the door and tract. Is this do-able? How is the pantry and wall hung up?

Pocket Door

By reading other blogs about pocket/sliding doors and after more thorough investigation I now see how it might be possible to remove the door without having to remove walls etc. I'll try it as soon as I get home. All I have to do now is find the parts that I will need to replace and figure out how I am going to be able to fit my arm and tools between the narrow gap that the door slides into.

The hardware I've seen has the door fitted hanger with a cam that fits into the suspended hook on the overhead track. Simply rotate both cams CCW until they release and the door will lower to the floor. Without restraint the door will rotate thru the opening.

All the hardware is good. What I need is the track that is above that suspends the door. The "rail" that the door rides on is starting to split and will soon have to be replaced. So far no luck searching on the web.

I was addressing removing the door. Once you have it down you can take the track to a "real hardware" store and id the one you have or change it to a real world set up. Make sure you measure top of door to ceiling to get your hanging clearance. Many homes have pocket doors, esp in the City. My problem was the securing screws. The two inside the wall were left slack at assembly, the door tilted. Like you made my arm 1/2 normal diameter and forced into the opening, got lucky problem solved.
