Strato-Fold bi-fold doors

A home owner from USA says:
I have multiple Strato-Fold doors in a condo where all 9 of the bottom guide posts are shot, missing plastic tips, springs, eic. The serial number of one of the 9 doors is 27766 see first attachment. I also attached the 3745.jpg picture from your web site because it looks like what I might need. I probably need all parts but the metal shaft which look like about

Looks like you have an old Peachtree bi-fold door. We only carry newer style replacements for this. As long as the cut outs for the pins are 1/2" square, you should be able to still use them. Look over the following pins: 21-028 (to replace your sample guide pin), 21-029 (top pivot) and 21-030 (bottom adjusting pivot). What do you think?

I recently bought 3 parts for the Strato-Fold Doors 21-028, 21-029 and 21-030. I got access to my condo to try to install 21-028 and realized I do not have a clue how to remove the old part and install new part. The existing parts are in round holes but there is 1/2" cut outs as mentioned in your response above. See attached images, I was able to get some good photos attached here.

Please do you have something that will tell how to replace the parts. I hope I do not need to remove the door.

Unfortunately you will need to take the doors out in order to remove and install the bi fold pins. You will use the square holes for the new pins and you will need to move in the top and bottom pivot blocks to compensate the different alignment of the pivot pins. Don't forget to use a drop cloth when removing the doors.
