Angry repairing sliding screen door

I have purchased new rollers for my sliding screen door and the instructions say to remove bottom and top of frame so the new rollers can be installed. I have removed the screws at the corners but cand figure how to get the frame apart. I have pulled on the corners to try to separate frame to no avail. Any suggestions?

Wow...don't know of any that require dis-assembly of the frame. Most have tabs on the frame that are then secured with screws, but the wheels normally can be inserted afterwards. Do you have a way to post some pics? Also, the brand and model would be very helpful. Where did you get the wheels. Please post that info as well.

You'd have to take the screen out of the frame to do what you say the instructions ask. Even the cheapest doors, for that matter high end doors, don't require that.
