Silverline Series 5500 Patio Door Track

A quick learner from New Jersey says:
Hello. My patio door track has cracked. It is a silverline 5500 series and the manufacture says the track is not replaceable. I was thinking of cutting off the entire length of the current roller bead, grinding the remainder flush with the track sill and installing one of your replacement tracks directly over it. Any experience with this type of repair and any other suggestions? Can you advise which of your rollers are a direct replacement for this door.

Good morning, Mike.

The 80-102 and 80-103 track cover might be a quick fix without you going through the trouble of cutting out and removing the damaged track.

However, if you were to choose the latter, the replacement tracks 80-105 and 80-106 would most likely do the job (with more labor).
