    Hey Gang,
    Picked up a 1997 250 Sundancer project - currently looking at repairing the 'Upper Track' on my cabin entry door - I can lift up the door and see the screws that are supposed to secure the door to the sliding track - the screws are either stripped or the holes are 'ovaled'. In my online searches - everyone is referencing the lower track roller - I'm pulling the driver console so I can pull the whole door assembly and repair both upper and lower track mechanisms. My questions are:
    1. Anyone else ever do this repair?
    2. Are there any part numbers for the track, slider/roller assemblies etc?
    3. Pics would be great?
    Appreciate any input - thanks!

    My door slides are shot also. I am thinking about removing the entire driver console also if I can get it started early enough this Spring to not impact my season. I have not looked up part numbers yet. I look forward to seeing how it is done if you get to it first. Good luck!

    Hey Clam Bake - glad there's someone else out there with the same situation - misery loves company right?! Sooooo, I'll try to post some pics - removal of the helm wasn't too much of a problem - (*I needed to replace the rack-n-pinion steering assembly and steering cable anyway - and updating gauges and gauge dash plate) I'm hopefully going to pull the door this weekend to determine what the next step will be. I'll keep ya'lls posted!
