Fountaine Pajot cockpit door

I have a 1994 FP Tobago-35. The sliding door between the salon & cockpit is becoming difficult to open and close. It sounds like whatever roller/slider mechanism that is on the bottom of the door is wearing out (tends to grate & sounds like bare metal on metal).

I tried to remove the door for repair by taking off the top of the frame but, after I pulled all of the screws the frame top piece would not budge (even after a couple of hammer whacks).

Does anyone know how I can get the door out to repair it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Mike F.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You may try to turn the adjustment screws on the inside jam of the door. This brings the roller mechanism into the frame and when both top and bottom are adjusted all the way up, the door will lift out.

Cockpit door

Libellula,

The door does not have adjusters on it, it is a solid sheet of plexiglass that sits in a slot on the bottom frame piece. I have made contact with FP so maybe something will come from that.

Thanks for the suggestion.
