Salon door wheels

Iíve removed the rolling salon door on my 1974 Grand Banks 32. I would like to replace the wheels that the door rides on. I cant figure out how the remove them from the door. There is an adjustment screw that raises and lowers the wheel height. Iím hoping someone else has done this and can help me out. Thanks!
Iíll post a picture.

Mine were not like that. But you can see how I replaced them at my blog, grandbankschoices.

You will likely have to improvise with something like these. It is a project that I have been avoiding mainly because the varnish on the surrounding area was redone by the prior owner and is in great shape. I appreciate the nice varnish every time I struggle with the door.

Thanks for your responses. The groove that the wheel rides in is only about 1/4” wide so I’m limited in what I can use as a replacement wheel. I think what I’m going to do is to leave the existing wheels in place and fasten a length of Teflon bar next to each one so that the Teflon rides on the bronze track instead of the wheels. Could work. Then if I find an answer to my wheel puzzle I can always remove the Teflon and replace the wheels.
Thanks again.
