Question 9 lite door frame replacement

The glass in my front door is 24x36 so the standard 22x36 9 lite door frame replacement won't work. Where can I find a 24x36 door frame, without or without 9 lites? Or, how can I create a frame to fit? I don't know the door manufacturer. It's original door put in by the builder, 20 years ago.

Is the the typical plastic frame held in with adhesive and screws?

And have you priced the replacements versus just replacing the entire door assembly? May come out cheaper replacing the entire door, casing and all. Easier, too.

Got your note...prefer to answer here so that everyone benefits.

First...where are you measuring on the lite? It's been a few years, and I don't have a door to reference here. If you are measuring the outside of the lite frame, I believe a 22" lite measures 24" ouside frame to outside frame. The actual glass is 22".
If you haven't, you should be able to go to a home center or door shop locally and measure one for comparison.

There were really only 2 companies making the plastic frames for quite a long time. I'm sure there were a few odd ducks out there of course.
