Answer: 
Yes, it's possible to install this track cover without removing the door. To do this, you need to raise the door and slide the track underneath. I've done it. But it's not easy. And I don't recommend attempting this unless you have appropriate tools and wedges and a helper to raise the door. Bottom line: if you're asking this question, then it's probably too advanced for you.

Answer: 
No. You must be able to lay this cap over the track rail to snap it into place. Snap is a bit misleading. I needed to encourage the snap with a small block of wood, hammer and a few firm but not hard blows to the wood.

Answer: 
Yes, it is not necessary to remove the traveling door, but some roller adjustment after the rollers have ridden up on the track may improve performance. Bear in mind you will be installing this product over the existing extruded track integral with the door frame.

The movable door has to be off the track to make the repair. The trim piece at the top of the door can be unscrewed and then the door needs to be lifted off the track. It is heavy and it may require two people to lift, it's not good to remove the door and then not be able to get it back in!

4 foot doors are quite heavy. I have never removed one without 2 people. I know wimp, huh. Adjust door rollers to fully retracted. Lift door into upper rail while guiding bottom of door out over bottom rail. Once clear of bottom rail, lower door as you move the bottom away from bottom rail. Once the top of door has been cleared of the top rail prop door in a safe place or lay it down flat. Kids and animals will be tempted to walk across the door. Protect it.
Measure original rail and cut new rail cap to length. Inspect original rail. If there is a cap already installed (vinyl door rails) pry it off and snap new cap into place. If original rail is molded into the frame (aluminum doors): Clean original rail watching for aluminum splinters as you wipe the rail down. If not you will find them with your fingers soon enough. It is important that you have adequate original rail to snap to. If you do not have adequate original rail this track cap is not the correct product for your repair unless you can build the rail back up in some way. Remember how heavy that door was when you removed it. The rail is going to have to support that weight plus some.
Good time to clean and lube your rollers before replacing door in the reverse order of removal. Adjust rollers after installation to level door and reduce any dragging on frame. Read Less

You might have to remove the outside door first to remove the inside door if the track that needs the repair is for the inside door. After the door(s) have been removed, clean the existing track and install the repair track over the damaged track by gently tapping the repair track over the existing track using a block of wood and tapping the block of wood with a hammer on the repair track. The use of the block of wood is not to dent the repair track. Check to see if the wheels on the door(s) function properly, if not, this would be a good time to replace the wheels while the doors are off of the tracks. After installing the repair track, reinstall the doors and the job is done. Read Less

Hi Willi
You have no worry. The trac is shipped in a 10ft round tube ab out two inches in diameter. Biggest problem is what to do with the 10ft tubes after you install the track.
Speaking of installing the tracs you have to remove the doors and they are heavy to install the trac. It just clips right on no problem. I got mine in two days.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 315 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product I installed this product and got great results! I also installed new wheels on the door at the same time. So now my sliding glass door is working better than new. First, of course, you got to cut it to the proper length. Then you've got to smack it on with a hammer and a wood block. If you don't use a wood block there is a good chance that you will damage it with just a hammer. I installed it by myself, although I think it would have been easier if I had another person to help me hold the rail straight while I used the hammer and wood block. Great product, really happy with it. You can see in the photos that this particular sliding glass door I repaired has two tracks. So, yeah, I had to buy two of these stainless steel repairs tracks, but it was still worth it. I think most sliding glass doors out there have just one track, I suppose. So anyway, one of the tracks went on super easy, but the next one was a little more difficult. I finally got it on. Had to get it lined-up just right, I guess. The door is working great, and it's smooth and quiet! May 28, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This replacement slide was perfect. I couldn't find a brand name on my slider door and I thought finding the slider rail would be very difficult. A few minutes searching the web and I found it at HD. I ordered it on line, it showed up a few days later, and installation was easy. I pulled the door out, removed the old slider, cleaned the track area, cleaned the door bottom, cut the rail to length, installed the rail and sprayed the door rollers, rail, and door overhead area with silicone. Reinstalled the door and it slides better than when it was new. December 29, 2015
