Removing the shower door from the wall

Has anyone removed the hinged side of the shower door frame from the wall. Only 3 screws hold the U-shaped channel (with long hinge) to the wall mounted frame, but it is stuck on tight...looks like a lot of silicone was used. It is a very flush tight fit and I can't pry it from the wall. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Gene

Hi, my shower door is different than yours, but mine was stuck on with two sided tape. [no screws on mine] The factory used white tape and I replaced it with 3M automotive gray/black two sided tape. The white tape will separate in the middle, but is hard to get the glue sides cleaned off.

Thanks Bob. This thing is like a rock...thought it would just slide off. Not sure what is holding it on so tight...I may try a heat gun this weekend to get it loose. Shower door came out of the frame and I need to fix it with the frame off then re-hang it. Trying to avoid a trip to the dealer. Oh well...another project.

Removing shower door

Hey - I'm going through this right now. How did you solve your problem? Did you ever get it off?

Ours collapsed last fall on the way back from New England. I had a rather long list of repairs needed due to rough roads in New Brunswick and New England so I had "my RV guy" look into it. I'll have to post some pics as I can't really describe what he did, but it worked. It is supported more now from below. The aluminum rail on the hinge side failed on mine (at the top) where it was attached to the top stile. Just ripped way. It was only supported at the top and bottom by plastic spacers and bushings.

Oh, and he didn't have to pull the door from the wall.

Did anyone get a solution to removing the shower door frame? I am replacing my collapsed shower door with the STOETT vinyl one. Have tried heat gun but to little success.

I did have success removing mine with a heat gun and a lot of patience. Remove the screws and there is double sided tape that is holding it place. A lot of slow heat and a screwdriver to torque it off worked for me. I wish you the best of luck!
