Andersen Sliding Door Parts

A quick learner from Minnesota says:
Just purchased house that has a 1972 Andersen 8' Sliding door with a worn track (and I am sure tired rollers). The corner of the Glass had the model 14873 if that helps. Have attached 3 pictures. Curious if you think a track cap would work based on the pictures or what you feel would be the best solution. Also need to know what tandem rollers to purchase. Do you have instructions for removal of the door?

Looking at your photo, the 80-103 track cover could be the solution you are looking for. This can cover worn or damaged tracks to help their performance. See the video below on how they work.

As for the rollers, since you have an older door you might want to see our 81-018. The newer Andersen doors use the 81-128 roller. You will need to take a look at these parts and see which ones are closer.

Thanks for the info. Do you have any materials or video on how to remove the door to access the rollers?
