Hi, this is Jake with Specialized Garage Doors, I want to show you how to replace the rollers on your garage door system. So, the first thing you need to do, when you're removing rollers on a garage door, is you take a pair of vise grips scrips. And go ahead and open a small notch in the track. You just, don't go grill on here, just open it up a little, like we've done. And then, you make sure you do it right above a few inches down from the break in the track. That's the ideal spot to be working on this. And go ahead and start with your first roller. Take a flat blade screwdriver, get it behind that roller and just pop it right out of the track. Then, install your new roller, pop it right back in that notch. Wheel the door down to the next roller, and reinstall your new one. Do that same process for all the next rollers, until you get all those and the hinges done. Now, you've got all those rollers changed in the track, you need to close this opening back, up. To do that, you take your track dolly, insert it back in the track here. And then, you can close that gap back, up. The top roller here, you can't change in that flare, that we did in the track. It just won't go down that far. So, you've got to remove it with the door up, open up the track a bit, push on up, get your roller out. And grab your new roller, pop it in. And that's how you change the top roller. Again, that was Jake with Specialized Garage Doors. And we've just shown you how to replace the rollers on your garage door.
