Removing or cleaning pocket doors on 1988 trawler

My two pocket doors feel like either the hardware is worn out or more likely they just need a good clean. Does anyone have any experience removing these doors to service them? Iím hoping there is a trick that doesnít involve removing the trim...

Canít tell much from your photos, but most pocket doors are accessed by removing trim on the head and the pocket side.
Run a razor knife in the joints first, and pry it up carefully, just a bit at a time.
One of the most common ailments with pocket doors is too long fasteners on surrounding trim or wall material that interfere with the doors movement.
