Some side hinges and rollers might need to be placed on the bottom bracket. It’s essential to remember that the bottom bracket is under tremendous pressure. The main spring’s tension needs to be removed before removing or repairing the bottom brackets.

Unplug the power to the opener and remove the door from the opener. The broken hinge should be removed first, and then the roller will be accessible.
Mark where the hinge edges are with a black marker before removing them. Remove the bolts. Put the roller in the new hinge in the roller section of the hinge. Slide the wheel back into the wall bracket and replace the bolts. Repeat as necessary.

With the top bracket, brace the garage door in an open position. Bend the track out with pliers just slightly. Pull the panel out slightly to access the roller. Repeat the steps in the opposite order to replace it.
