Replacing the wheel of 23-043 with 81-224

A quick learner from Walnut Creek, CA says:
Hi there, I have an Ace mirror door roller 1 1/4" that measures exactly like your 23-043 product. The nylon wheel broke (this isn't the first time) and it is time to get something stronger (i.e. made of steel). The 23-043 housing is still very sturdy and re-usable, is it possible to replace just the wheel part? If so, would the 81-224 work (since it's also 1 1/4" in diameter)?

And since I am not all that handy, how do I replace just the wheel on a 23-043?

Much thanks!

Thanks for posting! I personally believe that you should just replace the entire roller housing, and you should stick to nylon wheels, at that. If you were to use a steel wheel instead of the nylon, you could wear out the track and then you would have to replace that instead. I think you would be better off replacing the rollers as needed.
