To put the washer or oring on? If so it just slips over the pin or post. Takes a few seconds.
Mine doesn’t look like it has space or it’s migrated up. I’ll post a pic later not sure why driver side looks like it has no room and passenger side I can see pin and roller is def down on it maybe I need to tap it.

Yes, it taps down easily.

If that's the case, it didn't work that way on my driver door. The roller works it way all the way up the post and stays there. Then it would stop rotating due to the friction between it and the top of the post. I would lower it and lube it only to have to redo the process constantly.
That’s what my driver side door has done I’m assuming after the door over extended after a windy day where it caught it good.

I dug through my stash and found an assortment of O rings. I found one I thought might work and popped it on the top of the roller shaft. Presto!! No more noise! I have several more of these so we will see how long it last. I love this forum!
What size is that im at tractor supply right now and looks like a 3/8 will fit or do I want 7/16?

The washer I put on in my original post is still holding up and working great, haven't heard any noise in almost a year.
