I took the cheep way out. I got a used shower door roller mechanism. (the kind that slides in tracks.) I dremmeled out the plastic rollers and then shaved them down to the right size. then took off the door and poped them right onto where the old rollers were. Perfect fix with a bit of ingenuity. 50 cents and about one hour of work.

    I know that this solution was posted about two years ago, but can you remember "roughly" how big (diameter) the plastic rollers were ( in pounds sterling and not U.S dollars) ?????

Why are side sliding doors difficult to open and close without using the button?


The door tracks are greased at the factory . By now, the grease in the tracks of your 2005 Montana has disappeared or become contaminated. Also, the rollers have become contaminated with dirt. Cleaning and regreasing of both tracks and rollers should result in a marked improvement.

Passenger side door opens about 6 inches and stops. Push it further and it will continue to open. When it closes it stops at the same point, about 6 inches short. Push it to close and it will finish...


I had a door doing the same thing. My issue was that one of the wires in the plastic track that folds up was damaged. Basically, as the plastic track folded up to where there was a cut in the wire, the copper inside the plastic insulation pulled apart. Once you were past that point in the wire (where the door stops), the copper came back together and the door operated again.

I'm not sure about the noise, but the jerking motion might be because your the center roller (located in the rear middle of the sliding door) has worn out and need to be replace. This is a will known problem.

-door will only open half way

center roller:
-jerking motion when opening
-door kick back close while opening
-door kick back open while closing

Door motor:

2002 Honda Odyssey: sliding door jolts/reopens when closing


Please check the aft track roller assembly. It is easiest to inspect from the rear of the van looking forward when the door is open. You'll see the rear hinge assembly clearly. The track rollers cannot be seen but you can pull outboard on the rear edge of the door--the door should not move outboard more than 1/8 of an inch. If it moves out more than this or feels sloppy, suspect damaged/missing track rollers. This will cause the hinge to chatter in the track and "jolt". It will also cause the door to misalign during the close phase preventing the close motor from properly engaging.
Replacing this part is no easy task but doable if you are good with cars. Check back here for more details if you want to try it, otherwise get a competent mechanic or the Honda dealership to do it.

In order to replace the upper rollers, you will need to tap out the pin that holds the rollers to the track. When you do this, the door will want to fall out / off. Need 2 people. One to hold top of door so it wont fall out, the other to hold bottom of door and install the new rollers. Not somthing you would want to do in your garage unless you are a mechanic.Some goes for the lower rollers - Tech jk
