How do I get new door slider in?
« on: July 23, 2017, 10:24:50 AM »
I bought a new slider for my screen door to replace the broken one. It appears that the slider was installed as the door was assembled. Has anybody figured out a way to get this and without taking the door apart?

The plastic slider is flexible. Jua put in one groove, bend a little bit and pop the other side in.

If your door is like mine, you insert the pane in the top slide and it will go in far enough that it can be lined up with the bottom groove and allowed to rest in the bottom groove. No sweat, no pain.   :)

I't's not flexible enough to do that.  I think I'll have to grind off some of the tab along the bottom.

Before you start grinding I would carefully examine the door to see what could be removed to slide the intact panel in place.

You may have the wrong part. Winnebago is a different dimension than most.

On mine, there is a filler piece which is pliable enough to pull out which gives enough room to remove the old piece and install the new.  Then slide the filler piece back into place.  Mine was in the bottom space but imagine it could be above the glass.

Part numbers are stamped on the part and correct.

No glass on my screen door.

that's what I had to do with the replacement on my door. shaved off about 1/32" along the bottom and sanded it smooth.
