Acorn Dorwal Sliding Door

A handy person from northeast Ohio says:
The house i am helping with has several 4' Dorwal sliding glass doors.
Usually when replacing wheels, i would just lift the door up out of the track.
These doors do not lift high enough to make it out of the track.
Do i have to disassemble the side and top rails to get the door out?
Thanks for your time.

Dave from SWISCO responded:
For aluminum patio doors, you will need to remove the stationary door first. Once that's removed, you will want to lift the sliding door off the track to the outside of the house. The inside of the aluminum track is usually too tall to remove from the inside of the house. Watch the video below, this may help.
