How to install 81-090?

A quick learner from USA says:
I believe I found the correct replacement glass door rollers(81-090)to replace my broken rollers.

My question is can these type of rollers be pulled out from the bottom of the door without removing the bottom frame from the glass? They do not look to be held in by any other hardware, just look to be installed in the grooves of the door frame.

This is a Herculite glass door so I was wondering if there were any specific instructions to install these type of rollers.

Hey, Evan, thanks for posting. No, these rollers can't be pulled out without removing the bottom frame from the glass.

You will have to first remove the door from track. Then you will unscrew the two bottom frame screws and, with a block of wood, carefully remove the bottom rail to slide out the old rollers. You can then slide in the new rollers and reverse the process. After you get the door back on the track, you will have to adjust the new rollers to square up the doors.
