It was REALLY EASY to ID the parts with your website. I found exactly the rail I needed, and it recommended I buy the other rail as well. Since they were both 15 years old, that sounded like a good idea. The rails installed in about 10 minutes total. Two screws on each rail.
The door switches were more challenging, but it was because there was a lot of sticky soda on our old door switch, making me think it somehow needed other tools to remove it. No, just patience and effort. Once I removed all sticky stuff from the old switch, it pried out with a flat head screwdriver, the wire plugs came right off, and plugged in the new one. 10 minutes to get the old part out, 1 minute to put the new part in!
