Can I repair a pocket door without opening the wall?

Try removing the trim around the door.

That will usually either expose the track at the top, or removing the stops or trim down the sides may allow the door to swing out and lift off of the tracks.

Although the track is installed during construction, the doors are usually hung just before the trim is applied.
