Thumbs up Disassembly of kitchen cabinet doors in order to make them smaller

I purchased a new refrigerator/freezer and height of the kitchen cabinet over the fridge needs to be reduced so the fridge can slide under. I re-sized this cabinet a few years ago by cutting off the required amount from the bottom of the cabinet, but now I am going to have to disassemble the cabinet and doors, re-size them, and re-install. The cabinet can be disassembled without too much problem, but I am stuck on the disassembly of the doors because I am afraid glue was used in their construction.

Hi

It's comes down how much you must re-size them down if it's less than 2" it's best to make a new door frame and just use the panel, the panel should be floating so it should come out clean (no glue the norm) ..
