Default Repairing Rotating Clothes Rack

Had this coach near 4 years and never a problem with the clothes rack, till today. On closer inspection, looks like these nylon bolts have broken before and been replaced. Simple enough if I can figure how to get the roller out of the track so I can access the top of it to insert a new bolt or a nut on top and a bolt from the bottom up.

But looks like the whole roller assembly will have to be remover to do this, and I can't figure out how to do it. I know some one has repaired one of these. Any know how is comes apart?

Mallie, I would check the track all the way around . I would be willing to bet there is a slot or 2 where the rollers can be taken out of the track

Thanks Mike, That is my first thought, and I have looked as best I can with no luck. probably have to remove the rack to find it., which I will do when I return home. On the road to WOG now and thought there might be an easier way someone had discovered.

We pulled the clothes rack.

Nothing easy about it. All kinds of odd ball fasteners holding it up. In the last few, we realized the motor comes out fairly easy, so we dropped it out to reduce the weight of getting it down. At that point, a hole was revealed in the top of the rack, that would have made replacing the bolt pretty easy.

But we had decided we could take the racks off and mount them against the ceiling and have lots more room.
