Unhappy Under Sink Tambour Removal

Okay…just remember that you asked the question. The only way we can see to remove the tambour on the kitchen sink cabinet is to first remove the sink and countertop.

Hey…don’t kill the messenger. And if you get a better suggestion, please let us know.

Thumbs down Tampour Doors

Kill the messenger!! There are two rivets in the left [ and right??] columns behind the veneer in the front that tie the track channel to the column. Both tampour doors slide on that track, at least on my 71' Int.

You do not have to take the sink out to replace the tambour. Take a dremel tool and cut the inside track on the top and bottom about 1 inch long. You then can roll the tambour up and start feeding it from the inside. I hope this help is not too late.
