This instructable is to show how to fix an old shower door roller.  Here is what you will need: 4(four)-626z sealed roller bearings, 4(four)-6mm dia. x 8 mm long pull dowels, 4(four)-4mm x 0.7x 6mm long panhead machine screws, 8(eight)-4mm I.D. flat washers. (All available through an industrial supplier such as McMaster-Carr)  You will also need a Phillips or straight screwdriver, and a hammer.  First, remove old screws and rollerwheels with screwdriver. Next, press pull dowel into roller bearings, making sure to keep it flush on one side. Now place bearing with dowel and 1 washer against slot in shower door, and washer and screw on opposite side and secure.
