    Not at all. Stand inside the house, slide the door open around half way, grab each side of the door and lift it a cm or two until the bottom of the door is clear of the bottom channel/rail, then angle the bottom of the door towards you, then walk backwards. The door should come out pretty easily. If it's a bigger door then two people might make it easier - one on each end.

    This may not work if you have more modern multi-stacker doors, but anything from the 90's and earlier it should be fine. Installing is the reverse of the above - Angle top of door away from you and aim it into the top channel, move door to fully vertical position maintaining the top in the top channel, then lower the door into the bottom channel. Job done

    Sometimes the wheel have a height adjustment and you have to wind the wheels in (usually a screw hole at the ends of the door) to clear the bottom track.

    My builder couldn't fix them, it may be a more terminal issue, but then he is a real builder, not a ranch slider repairer.

    Okay this guy turned out to be the REAL DEAL !!!!
    He has been doing Ranchslider Repairs for 18 years and he knows his ranchsliders man does he know them.
    Talking to them on site, they are often called out to fix the mess left by Exceed.
    Good pricing and fast team work with his offside, and they have all the parts needed in their van.

    Fixed 2 of my really nobbled ranchsliders in a couple of hours, really fast updates on what could and could not be done.
    If they cant fix them, then nobody can.

    Plus they did a few other jobs I was going to get someone else to do.
    * Replaced 2 windows for me
    * Put a lock on a ranchslider
    * Put a new handle on a window

    0800 320 656

    Good on-going communication
