A house we have has a sliding patio door. The frame is Aluminum as is the track on which it runs.
The door just doesn't want to slide. The bearings in the rollers (especially on one side) don't seem to work. The "rail" on the tracks is worn down a fraction and spawlng (sp?) can be seen.
The door is relatively easy to remove and we inspected the bottom. We could see the two wheel mechanisms but we just could NOT remove them. There are ridges in the U shaped opening in the bottom of the lower rail they keep it in place.
SO: How can I removed these "wheel/" (I think Lowe's has replacements)
At what point do I "give up" and start shopping for a NEW door?
