Removal of the broken glass was easy , and it looked like the new glass just slid back into place. Ordering of the glass was also easy, and it looked like it would work. But, when the glass arrived, it looked liked the new door was exactly 1/2 inch too wide and the handle was 1/2 each off too. There was no where that stated that the glass needs to go in from the bottom up. You must take off the door by lowering it all the way to the floor and lifting the hinges. (See the manual) Once it is off, remove the clips from the bottom. Then put the glass on. The handle has to be turned only one way. So, even though it looks like it could go either way, it doesn't. Turn it over to fit. It was easy once the door and the clips were removed.
