Could I see a few pictures of your door where the roller is located? That will help us determine a solution.

Thanks for the reply. Here are pics of the side, front and back of the bottom of the closet door. After I had previously taken the whole door off and it was laying down, I took off the main screw holding the roller in, but when I tried try to pull it out it seems that it is also being held in place by the bottom piece of the sliding door. The bottom of the door has a small lip on both sides of the bottom that keeps the roller from coming out. Let me know if I need to send you pics of the roller itself, I'll need to take the door off again (not easy, these things are heavy). : ) Thanks.

Ah, I see. Okay, you are going to have to remove the door and lay it on a table or saw horses. Remove the frame screws and, with a wood block and hammer, tap off the bottom rail. You might have to slightly tap the bottom sides away from the bottom rail if it is hooked to the bottom rail.
