Removing shower door

A screw holding the shower door frame together seems to have sheered off. The door now sags and the frame is separating. My immediate problem is that I can't seem to remove the shower door to repair it. I've removed the 3 screws on the inside of the shower but that hasn't loosened anything (unless I need more muscle). I don't see any other fasteners that will allow it to be disassembled. Any suggestions?
One picture is a closeup, the second is the same view but further away.

This is a known problem by Airstream caused by supplier using SS screws which are 1/8" too short; we replaced ours but the screw thread was still in the extrusion when it broke off; could not get it out so they sent me a complete door assembly! We simply removed the screw on the new model which is longer and put it back together without taking off the enclosure in the AS. Also installed a new bushing in the bottom hinge....anyone want to purchase a brand new shower door??

Thanks, I'm not too surprised. Any idea how to take the assembly apart? It looks like the screw is broke off and I don't see any way to get at it without taking the door apart.

Ours opened up while driving and it "fell out" half off the "hinge" area, but still connected to bottom frame/hinge, hanging on with the lower hinge/extrusion. So I was able to "pull off" the upper frame/extrusion since the glass door was exposed outside the frame and I could see where the screw was broke off inside the extrusion. I was shipped the "new replacment" door from AS so I just took off the new top extrusion with the new screw, removed the screw and installed it on my glass door, reinstalled the screw into the frame. This door is too heavy for an RV in my opinion...residential useage. AS is aware and has lots of Teflon spacers and new longer steel crews here in Jackson Center we found out yesterday...
