A quick learner from WA says:
How do I remove the old 81-092 roller assembly from a 40 year old sliding Trimview patio door?

Paul from SWISCO responded:
Most of the time, you remove the door and lay it down on a flat surface like a table or even a pair of saw horses. Remove the two bottom frame screws and use a block of wood and hammer to carefully knock off the bottom rail from the glass. That will give you access to the door rollers.
A professional from California says:
They are held in with a small screw from the top. Keep in mind this is the only roller I know of that adjusts the opposite of the way most doors do.
Counter-clockwise is up. Make sure the screw moves easily before installing and always take the weight off the door when adjusting. The adjustment screw is fragile and is a big hassle if it breaks.
