Pella sliding glass door - doesnt

I have a 2001 vintage pella exterior sliding glass door that is binding when sliding. I can't find a model number. It has a 3/8 inch hole about 4" up from the bottom that I thought nigh be the roller adj hole but the screwdriver goes in far beyond the roller assembled. There is also a small SS screw about 1 inch from bottom but I can't see a screwdriver fitting into the hole. None of the pella replacement roller assemblies seem to have a attechment score hole on their end. In Addison someone has stripped the two bracket screws that hind the sliding door in place if it were to jump the tracks . Also the sliding door is on the outside and every Fixit". Video I have see has the moving door on inside. Does anyone know what the thread pattern of the little Phillips screw migh be. Ditto the right rolle assembles? House is in a remote from hardware store area and I don't want to leave door off while I go 100 miles to hardware store.

When possible, post pictures of the door in its completeness, inside and out, as well as a close up picture of the adjustment holes at the bottom. Generally a #2 phillips screwdriver will adjust the roller.. Sometimes you will need to give the door a little lift since they are so heavy.
