Shower Door Wheel, 3/4"

A handy person from New Jersey says:
How do I attach the 10-100 wheel to the sliding door? It looks like the original wheel was rivoted to the door? I want to order this, but what good will it do if I can't attach it?

Dave Sr. from SWISCO responded:
Normally shower door rollers are screwed into top of door with a 8-32 machine screw. Check to see if there is a rivet, if the wheel is riveted on see if you can change out the complete roller housing. As a last resort you can possibly drill out or grind off the rivet. However take care not to damage the door, the frame, or the glass.

OK...but then how do i attach it and if i use a machine screw won't that impede the ability of the wheel to glide on the track?

The roller has a shoulder on it and the screw is screwed into a ball bearing axle.
