Switching opening of sliding patio door

Shannon's video of removing a sliding patio door is EXTREMELY HELPFUL. Can you show or explain how to change one to open from the left side instead of the right panel? We need to accomplish this even if the new positioning won't lock. This is between our dining room and sunroom and we hope to accomplish this change in the next week or so. Thank you. CJ

Depends on the door, but usually it's a matter of flipping the panels from side to side.

Post some pictures of the door, the operating panel, the fixed panel, the top and bottom tracks where the panels ride, and the center edges of the panels where they interlock when the door is closed.
