Unhappy garage door problem

I recently went to close my garage door and unexpectedly my granddaughter left a stick in the track of the door. It popped off one roller and bent another. where do i purchase these rollers and are they difficult to replace?

Assuming that they are a standard size, they can be purshased almost anywhere: Home Depot, Lowes, Sears, any place that sells garage door openers will probably have them. They are not expensive, about $3 for a pair.

I recently had a spring replaced, and after the guy replaced the spring, he 'checked' out the entire door and found 1 broken roller (nylon). He charged me about $60 to replace all the rollers, and it took him about 10 minutes to do.

He used vise grips to warp the track and remove the and replace the old rollers. He did this in 2 spots on the track and rolled the door to the spots. I was amazed at how easy he made it look.

Don't forget to shoot the spindle with some penetrating oil, it will help.
