If you’re experiencing trouble with your shower door, such as difficulty opening or closing it smoothly, or if the door is sagging or coming off its track, it may be time to replace the door rollers. Replacing shower door rollers is a relatively easy DIY project that can be completed in a few hours with the right tools and materials.

Materials Needed:

New shower door rollers (the number and type will depend on your shower door)


Allen wrench (if required)

Measuring tape


Pencil or chalk

Clean rags


1. Gather Your Tools and Materials

Before you begin, gather all of the necessary tools and materials. You’ll need a screwdriver, an Allen wrench (if required), a measuring tape, a level, a pencil or chalk, and clean rags. You will also need new shower door rollers. The number and type of rollers you need will depend on your shower door, so be sure to consult the manufacturer’s instructions or measure the existing rollers before purchasing new ones.

2. Remove the Old Rollers

To remove the old rollers, start by opening the shower door and lifting it off the track. Once the door is off the track, use a screwdriver or Allen wrench to remove the screws that hold the rollers in place. Be careful not to lose the screws, as you will need them to install the new rollers.

3. Clean the Track

Once the old rollers are removed, take a moment to clean the track. Use a damp rag to wipe away any dirt or debris that may have accumulated over time. This will help to ensure that the new rollers roll smoothly.

4. Install the New Rollers

To install the new rollers, simply reverse the steps you took to remove the old rollers. Insert the rollers into the track and secure them with the screws. Be sure to tighten the screws securely, but avoid overtightening them, as this could damage the rollers.

5. Adjust the Rollers

Once the new rollers are installed, you may need to adjust them to ensure that the door opens and closes smoothly. To adjust the rollers, use a level to ensure that the door is hanging evenly. You can also use a measuring tape to ensure that the door is centered in the opening. Once the rollers are adjusted properly, tighten the screws to secure them in place.

6. Test the Door

Once the rollers are installed and adjusted, open and close the door several times to test it. Make sure that the door opens and closes smoothly without any resistance. If the door is still difficult to open or close, you may need to adjust the rollers further.


Replacing shower door rollers is a relatively easy DIY project that can be completed in a few hours. By following these steps, you can upgrade your shower with new door rollers and enjoy a smooth, trouble-free shower experience for years to come.
