Replace the track for bi-fold doors
]The opening on my closet door is just flat sheet rock it is 48" wide. It has 2 231/2" hollow core bi-fold doors. I need to know how to replace only the track at the top. What are all the steps involved, I have no idea what I am doing. Please can I get some help?

Remove the doors by lifting them up and out at the bottom. Remove the screws holding the track into the top of the door opening.

That's all I do

The pins on top of the door are spring loaded, the pin at the bottom adjusts the height when you turn it. Pay attention to the location of the lower and upper fixed pin are before you remove the door, they can both be adjusted side to side to line up the door to the frame. But yes just pick it up so the lower pin lift of it's holder and remove the door.

Have a helper when you do this. These doors are really awkward.
