Center roller sliding door repair under $5.00!
I fixed the broken roller today for under $5.00.
I took the panel off, unbolted the assembly, left is still attached to the 2 actuator cables. One of the rollers were completly gone. There were the reminants of a small snap clip that held it in place. I used wire cutters to cut it off. After you do that, you will see that there is a groove in the pin that the roller will go over. Once you put the new roller on, it will accept a new snap clip.
I went to Lowes and bought the following:
Nylon Spacer: 1/2 x .194 x 1/4. They are in the hardware section in the pull out bins or go to your local Ace hardware etc.
5/32"e-clips. They are in the same section. They are round and will snap right into the groove of the pin.
The nylon spacers are a little bit too long so a bench grinder, file, sandpaper etc can shorten them up a little so the clip can fit.
Look at some of the other excellent threads to learn how to pull the rear light out, and slide the small body panel out. It is no big deal. I had to run to Lowes a few time to get the right side clips and rollers but next time I can do the entire job in about 30 minutes.
I paid $1.29 for each bag so $2.58 plus tax.
I hope this helps. Take care everyone.
