Alcan sliding glass doors need wheel replacement 1-5/8"

A home owner from St. Petersburg, FL says:
Hi,

We have three-part Alcan sliding glass doors, super-heavy. Handyman measured the wheels at 1-5/8". I'd like to order six replacements; also need six new screws to hold them in place. Don't know the make or model on the door, only that there is a black plastic Alcan logo on the top side edge of the middle one.

Doors were installed in 1996 and one wheel (and or its bearings) seems to break every year or so.

Handyman asks, if possible, to include installation instructions with parts.

Can you help?

Hey, Bob. Many Alcan aluminum patio doors used the 81-133 roller, but there's no guarantee that this is what you have. The only way to be 100% sure is to remove your existing roller and compare it to our information. I'm also not sure what size screw they used for door frame. When your handyman takes the frame apart, he can take the screw to the nearest hardware store for replacement. For removal instructions, see the video below.
