I have shower doors that were installed about 30 years ago. The bottom track was loose and letting water leak, so I removed the doors and track. The side of the track that sits on the edge of the tub is hollow and was filled with someting that had the consistancy of putty (as least where it hadn’t shrunk and hardened. I assume it was caulk. In any case, to make my ignorance totally clear, I need to figure out what to do next. If I fill the hollow on the bottom of the track with a lot of silicone caulk, will it stay in place when I turn it over to place it on the tub, or will it just be a major mess? Same issue for the pieces that go on the walls, but they will not need as much caulk. Is there something better to use? Thanks.
