Patio door anti rattle guide pins

A handy person from Shrewsbury, MA says:
My patio door has 2 nylon guide pins at the top of the door(inside)that are rather worn. It is a round pin approx 3/8 dia x 1/16 thick. It pushes into a hole that is 7/32 dia ( measured with a drill bit). I don't see anything like this listed for patio doors. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hello John.

If you're having trouble identifying replacement parts online, we recommend you upload photos of your hardware so we can take a look.

Couple of photos showing the glide pin on my patio door. It looks similiar to the 87-132 guide pin listed under sliding window guides.
The hole shown in the photo is what it plugs into. That particular one is missing. A small nylon bolt & nut would be better than nothing.

John, it seems the 87-132 Window Guide is a good fit.
