Question Kitchen Cabinet Removal & Repair

Overhead Cabinet frames in my '95 30 ft. Excella are are separating at the bottom joints between the vertical and horizontal wood frame , and need repairing.
I would like to remove them , close the gaps, and secure them with screws.
Problem is, I don't know the sequence to take them down.
Anyone done this who can give me advice?

Ken Harrell

Ken,
If your cabinets are constructed like the ones in our '88, you can remove the face of the cabinet without removing the entire cabinet.
The face frame is attached to the underside with phillips screws going into a 1x1 inside the cabinet. Just undo the screws on the underside.
The face is attached to the ceiling with an aluminum L bracket. Undo the screws attaching the bracket to the backside of the face frame.
This should free the frame without removing anything more than necessary.
If your cabinets are constructed differently, please post some pics and we will try to help.
Thanks,

Finally got camera going. Only screws I see are 2 on each end. Any advice appreciated.
