    We have a framed glass pivoting shower door. Taking the unit out to get moldy silicone cleaned up and redone. Have the door itself out and the right wall jam but there's a "side light" piece of glass that's about 10" wide that needs to come out before we can get to the left wall jam to remove the 3 screws. Each edge of the glass has 2 strips of vinyl glazing. The top 2 pieces (inside and out) just dropped down when we took the "header" piece off. We're left with bottom piece, left wall jam, glass panel and right side trim piece of glass. Is it safe to assume that the glazing pieces just come out and then get pushed back into place with re-assembly?

    Thanks in advance!

    Often they are a "U" shaped piece that fits over the edge of the glass and is then inserted into the metal channels.

    No such luck. I've got 8 seperate pieces. Top and bottom came out easy. Outside of one long side we worked out, two on other side stayed in place and glass and trim piece came out as a whole so we'll see how it all goes back together. Getting all the silicone off now.
