Pella sliding screen door

I have about a 20-year-old Pella sliding door. The sliding screen has stopped sliding. A plastic part that held part of the door on the track has broken. I am including a picture of what I am talking about. I contacted Pella and you would not believe this, they wanted $900.00 to replace the new track. I said I just wanted the plastic part that broke or something that I could fix this problem with. So Any Ideas about finding a roller or clip that would do the job. I do understand that this clip is attached to a spring. I would like to maybe find a clip that would fit on the track to slide and I would maybe attach it to the end of the door. I believe I have an inch or so to attach something. So any ideas about finding a roller or clip that would do the job.

This is what the BLACK part looks like if not broken

This is half of the part which the screw goes into

Pella kind of has you where they want you when it comes to replacement parts. My advice would be go go to the window department at your local Lowes and see if they could order the parts for you. They will sometimes cooperate with Lowes, and you will get better pricing if you can go through them. But Pella won't provide certain parts through Lowes either.

Many companies are not very service oriented and they would prefer you to give up so they can sell you a whole new door.
