Replacement roller for a Norandex 501 series door

A home owner from Stuart, FL says:
I.m sure I'm right with the 81-133 replacement. Do they come with install instructions? If not do they install from the bottom or must you remove the lower frame?

I have a Norandex (Reynolds) 501 series 96-0608-20 series 96-0608-20

Thanks in advance

Look on the bottom side edge of the patio door side rails. You should have a screw on each corner that holds the frame together. You will also have a hole where you adjust the roller screw. Remove the corner screw that holds the frame together on both sides. You might want to lay the door down on a work bench or a good set of saw horses. Now with the assembly screws removed take a block of wood and a mallet or soft headed hammer and tap off the bottom rail. It should come off with out too much problem. Take care not to damage the glass in the door. Take your time.
