Pocket Doors on 29 HFS

The front rollers on both pocket doors on my 29HFS have now broken. There is a plastic insert the rollers pin goes in and it just falls apart. I fixed the first one with parts from Home Depot and since it came in a package of two I have another to fix the second door. Cheap parts from the factory! Anyone else have issues with this?

Yes same with my doors, I simply put a thin metal washer in there, I guess I'll see how long it lasts.

If it doesn't last very long I think I'm going to simply remove the doors as others have done. We really don't need the doors since our kids sleep in the garage.

One of mine broke and I've added a C clip to the pin, slid it into the slot and then used a wire tie to keep it from pressing against the metal catch while locking the catch into place. The first time I fixed it I left the wire tie off and it didn't make it one trip.

Replacements are easily available online but I figure if it broke once a new one will too. I can rebuild it. Better. Stronger. Faster. The 6 cent repair.

Gently pry off the wood header that hides the track. That will give you more room to get the pin back in. Then just carefully line up the staple and tap the header back in with a rubber mallet. Do not use a hammer!

Mine did the same thing so I fixed it by myself without removing any trim pieces. I recommend a step stool and a second person to gently lift the door while you take a small screwdriver and push the roller out of the slot. I went on Amazon and purchased new hangers that have metal clips so they won't break like the white plastic ones.
If you want more detail just let me know and I can possibly make a video showing how to do it.

First, did you either get the replacement hardware or add a c-clip to the pin in the track. Once the plastic color breaks out of the piece on the door it will never stay put. The pin will slide in and pop right back out the top.

Second, I know a poster after me said you can do it without removing the header. I'm sure it can be done. I've seen people get the ring on the bottle in the carnival toss. Just not very often.

By removing the header and standing on a step stool or ladder you should be able to see the slot to get it lined up. I added a 1/4" or 5/16" c-clip to my pin. Then slid it all the way into the slot until it reached the back of the channel. Then I pushed the arm on the door part of the bracket back across the pin to hold it.

It failed.

The arm came off the pin again on the first trip. So I did all of the above again, including removing the header to see and get my big ole paws in there to work and after I had it all together again I used a bread twist tie to secure the little arm so it can't slide off again. After replacing the header you can't see it. I keep meaning to order a new bracket to do a proper fix, but it's really not a problem. I've now towed 400+ miles over Pennsylvania roads without it coming out again.

I'd have taken photos but I did all this before I saw this thread. Sorry.
