Replacing an old door with side lights

I have an old wood door with sidelights and the handle has broken. I would like to replace just the door and not the sidelights. Is this possible? :confused:

Re: Replacing an old door with side lights

Without seeing the door, I would have to say yes. If it's a standard type door, you can purchase a new "slab" (door panel only ) and install the hinges and hardware to fit the opening. If you don't have the ability to do that, for a fee, many door suppliers will do it for you but will need the old door for a few days to transfer the correct hardware sizing and location. Or, any contractor worth their salt can change out a door slab for you.:)
