How do you remove the medicine cabinet

Both really. The one above the toilet and the one above the lavatory need to come out. Any instruction for removal?

On my 2002, there are screws inside the cabinet which attach it to the wall.

If it's like the one in our 1994 Excella, the easy part was removing the screws. The hard part was wrestling it out since it's just as wide as the space it's in.

You've got to first remove the lower section. There are a few screws under it that come out first. The open the doors to the lower section and look for a couple of rounded oak plugs under the upper rail. Remove those oak plugs with a sharp knife and you'll see the other screws.

Once the screws are out the lower section will come out. You may or may not have some wiring to remove once the lower section is loose, and then you gently move it forward enough to get it out.

Upper section is similar - look for a few screws inside the upper cabinet or under the upper section, and then for a couple of oak plugs under the upper rail inside the doors hiding the other screws. There will be wiring for the lighting which needs to be disconnected before pulling out all the way.

I can't remember exactly, but I believe that I had to hunt for a few or the screws on the upper section behind removable panels. You'll know if you remove the screws you see and still have something holding it in. The upper section screws the the wall and to the ceiling.

Have a helper with you to support the cabinets while you pull the screws.

All good advice so far from the others. I have removed both of mine, during a total tear out nearly 4 years ago. In my case I remember screws and 1/8" pop rivets. I drilled out the pop rivets with a #30 bit. It did take some searching to find them all out, but once all the fasteners were removed both cabinets popped right out without damage. As suggested, a helper is nice especially for the over the sink cabinet. In my case there was a single hard to see rivet inside the upper portion of the sink med cabinet that needed to be removed.


I just looked at my old med cabinets. I counted 4 holes on the toilet wall cabinet (2 in the inside right and two on the outside left) and 4 that would have been holding the above sink cabinet (3 along the bottom exterior and 1 inside upper middle).



I also suggest dealing with lights and wiring first, before you try to remove the cabinets. Post pictures of your installations if they are like mine I can definitely be of more help.

Yes, I should have mentioned that mine are also molded plastic. Let me know if you have other questions. It's fine to PM me.
