I had the dealership address the rattling of the sliding passenger door on our 2002 Honda Odyssey. The removed the inner panel and adjusted the door striker which didn't stop the rattle. Any suggestions...


The sliding door has upper roller, lower roller, and center roller mechanisms. These rollers can become damaged and rattle in their respective tracks. The upper and lower rollers are easy to inspect, as they are at the front of the door (top and bottom) and in plain sight. But the center roller cannot be inspected until the center rail cover (an exterior narrow long panel) is removed.

To remove the center rail cover, first remove the tail light assembly on the affected side. (That procedure can be found by doing a fixya search for "2002 Honda Odyssey brake light replacement"). Now open the sliding door. Notice at the front of the rail cover there is a small bolt. Remove this bolt. Go to the back of the center rail cover and remove the two screws (only accessible when tail light assembly is removed). Then slide the center rail cover rearward to remove it. Now you will be able to inspect the center roller mechanism and door cables. Look carefully for damaged rollers which will let the door wobble in the center track and rattle.

How do these rollers get damaged? When kids climb onto the doors and "slide along". The door guide rollers and latches were not designed to carry much more weight than the door itself.

Door ajar light stays on but all the doors apear to be shut?? 2003 Windstar


The post sensor needs to be adjusted the most common problem is the side door sometimes it's the switch goes bad and other times the sensor has to be adjysted, the sensor will be on the door post by the passenger side door at the bottom. Look for it you will see it. Aslo the rollers go bad on the top of the door and when shut may close but will not kill the door ajar light the front upper roller assembly is the most common problem, it has three bolts you can unblot and remove and then pull it out and see if the rollers are bad if there is plastic missing or flat spots on the rollers replace them a roller kit that you can get from ford is 10 bucks and it doess all rollers hope this helsp and thanks for using fix-ya.

Side door will not open when we try something holds it from opening


If you look carefully in the track in the center of the van, look to see if the rollers are still intact to the piece that slides back and forward. Also if you can get the door open far enough, look for the same thing on the topp and bottom of the door. They are like a plastic,which may have broken away.

Power sliding doors on mini van opens but start closing as soon as it gets to the full open position you have to push on it to get it to stop, a small child might get stuck.


If the door opens up right away that generally means there is debris is in the bottom where the door slides on by the roller track. If the driver side door does not open electrically the fuel lid is not centered. The lid has a switch on it.

Glass on sliding door


this is the link to the information http://www.swisco.com/Screen/how-to-repl...

Opening your patio sliding glass door should be an easy task. If your sliding door is giving you a work out every time you open it, most likely it is your rollers that are causing the problem. The rollers are located on the bottom of the sliding door and give the door the ability to slide. Often times they get dirty and wear out, making it difficult to open the door. If you have an older sliding glass door your rollers may have become rusty because sliding door units did not always use stainless steel rollers.

Hiring a professional to replace your rollers could cost you around $100 not including the cost of the replacement parts. Below are detailed steps containing all the information you will need to know to replace your patio sliding glass door rollers yourself.

* Before you start, understand that you need to take the sliding glass door out of its frame to work on the rollers. The sliding glass door is heavy. You may need the assistance of another to help you remove the door.

1) Your patio glass door will have two separate glass units. One unit is the door that you slide and the other unit is stationary. First, stand outside your house and look at your sliding glass door. If the stationary unit is between you and the sliding unit you will most likely have to remove the stationary unit so that you can get to the glass sliding unit.

Before you go through the trouble of removing the stationary unit, first try to go inside your house and see if you can remove the sliding unit. Usually you cannot because there is a lip along the bottom of the patio glass door frame (it keeps moisture out of the house) that prevents the sliding glass door from being removed from the inside.

If the rollers on the bottom of the door are difficult to get over the lip, you can adjust them to help you create more room (go down to step 2). If it is not the rollers but the sliding unit�s frame preventing you from pulling the sliding unit out of the door frame, you are going to need to remove the stationary unit first before you can remove the sliding unit.

To remove the stationary unit, you first need to take out your screen door (if you have one). Lift one end of the screen door frame and use a screwdriver to lift the roller on the bottom of the screen door frame off of the track. Do this to both ends of the screen door and your screen door will pull out of the door frame.

The stationary unit is held in place by a metal piece that runs along the bottom of the track from the corner of the stationary unit to the bottom of the side jamb (there is a chance this piece is missing but if you do have one remove it from the track). After you have removed the metal piece, look for screws holding the stationary unit frame in place. After removing all of the screws try pulling the stationary unit out of the door frame. If you are having trouble pulling out the stationary unit, try placing a screwdriver between the stationary unit�s bottom frame and the track it is resting on. Lift up on the screwdriver while you have a helper pull out the stationary unit from the door frame. Be careful not to use too much force with the screwdriver so that you do not damage the door track.

2) You may need to create more room when you attempt to remove the sliding unit from the door frame. To create more room you can adjust the rollers on the bottom of the sliding unit. By turning the adjusting screws on the rollers clockwise the wheels move up into the sliding unit�s frame giving you more room. The adjusting screws are located either at the bottom of the sliding unit�s frame or in the sides of the frame. There is a chance that there are plugs covering the screws.

After you adjust both rollers (one on each side of the sliding units frame) try to remove the sliding unit from the door frame. If the unit is still getting stuck you may need to get someone to help you. Have your helper lift one side of the unit and pull outwards while you try to pry the other side of the unit over the track.

3) To remove the rollers from most sliding units you need to remove the bottom of the sliding units frame. Most likely the screw that holds the roller in place is the same screw that holds the frame together. Remove the screw from both sides of the unit. Then try to remove the bottom piece of the frame off of the sliding unit; you may need to use a rubber mallet or a piece of wood and tap on the bottom of the frame until it comes off of the sliding unit.

Now that you have removed the bottom of the frame you can take a close look at your patio glass door rollers. Remove one of the rollers and match it up with one of the rollers on this page http://www.swisco.com/page/SI/CTGY/patio...

It is a good idea to replace both sliding door rollers at the same time to prevent extra wear-and-tear to one new roller, which will have to work twice as hard when paired with an older roller.

4) After your new rollers come in, replace your old rollers with the new ones. To make it easier to install the sliding unit back into the door frame, adjust the rollers to be all the way up into the frame. Once you have the sliding unit back in the door frame you can adjust the rollers for optimal performance. Keep adjusting the rollers until the door is sliding back and forth easily
