    Hi All,

    Posting on behalf of my Dad.

    He has an aluminium(i think) sliding door, from Anglican probably 30 years ago. The door itself is fine but the runners/rollers are broken. He has contacted Anglican but they obviously don't sell this door anymore and can't track down much information about it.

    We believe we should be able to raise each individual door up by the screws on the side, and it should lift out BUT it is too high and does not clear the top and was possibly made too big, so we can't get that to work.

    We're pretty sure if we take the whole frame out we can fix it that way, but are trying to save doing that unless we really have to.

    Anyone have any suggestions please, i've posted a few photos in case it helps. Thanks

    Yeah it seems so, if the end result is its impossible to fix then a new door is inevitable, but we want to at least give it a try first.

    Anyone? Thinking is probably unlikely but worth a last shot.

    Now I might be totally talking out my ar$e but I'm fairly certain if you remove the frame screws along the top aluminium section either the front half of the aluminium frame will come forward allowing the top of the door to be lent forwards, slide the door closed to expose the screws then open to expose more, careful because the doors are very likely to have 6mm glass in and will be heavy

    Should lift out easily. Put the door in its most open position (to avoid any anti lift blocks) and lift it fully.
    Its possible the top of the track has bowed down a bit in the middle which might make it tough

    That would be an ecumenical matter
