Hi llight,


When replacing the upper or lower track the doors will have to be removed. Have someone assist you as the doors are heavy. Locate a spot to place them while you work.


To remove the door, lift it up to disengage it from the lower track, side the door out towards the room slowly, until it can be disengaged from the upper track. Then set the door aside so it’s out of the way while you work.


If you are replacing the roller wheels for the door, the door will have to be removed as well; due to the fact most wheels are installed into the door from the bottom.


With the doors off, now is a good time to replace any worn rollers or guides.


Finally when the new track is in place replace the doors by sliding them into place engaging the upper track first then lift the door to set it in the lower track.
