If you are replacing a roller:
These instructions only apply if you are replacing the rollers between the bottom fixture and the top fixture of your garage door. These rollers are found along the side of the door except the very bottom and the very top. For instructions on replacing the roller secured by the top fixture view our tutorial titled Top Roller Replacement. For instructions on replacing the roller secured by the bottom fixture view our tutorial titled Bottom Roller Replacement.
We have also made a video to help you replace your garage door rollers in order to provide you a more audio-visual option while preparing to do your repair. Caution: The video was NOT designed to REPLACE the instructions below. The video is designed to INFORM the instructions. Protect yourself from serious injury and your property from further damage by reading all of the instructions below in addition to watching the video.
|1. Remove the bolts that secure the hinge to the garage door.|
|2. Remove the hinge and roller from the door. To remove the roller from the track, you will need to angle the stem toward the inside of the garage. Remove the roller from the hinge.|
|3. If you are replacing just your roller, insert the new roller into the old hinge. If you are replacing just a hinge, insert the old roller in the new hinge. If you are replacing both the hinge and roller, insert the new roller in the new hinge. The two ends of the hinge have holes for the lag screws. The end with a slot in the hinge must be on top, while the end with just a hole must be on the bottom.|
|4. Insert the roller in the track. Again, you will need to angle the roller toward the inside of the garage for it to enter the track. Line up the holes for the hinge.|
|5. Secure the hinge to the garage door. You may need to add another bolt if one of the old bolts is broken. If you used a drill with a socket extension or an impact wrench to secure the hinge, check the tightness of the bolts with a socket wrench, and tighten the bolts accordingly.|
