sliding glass door track

A home owner from orlando, Fl says:
I have a sliding glass door that is about 20 years old - I doubt the former owners did any type of maintenance on it - I noticed that the track is worn down in a section about 18 inches long and we have to lift the door and slide it to open and close the door. Is there a part I can use to repair this or do I need to replace the whole door?
Thanks for your help.

Thanks for posting! Take a look at our 80-100 Tall Track Cover, or the replacement tracks 80-105 and 80-106. These might get you out of the jamb. Also, when you take the door off, make sure that you check your rollers and see if they could be worn out.
