I removed the stops on both sides of the rack, and removed the rack. I then pulled the rail on the right side as far forward as possible, and then used needle nosed pliers to slightly bend upward the stop in the middle, allowing the bearings to clear and fully removed the track, leaving the housing in place. I then slid the replacement track into the housing, being sure that the bearing bracket cleared, and bent the stop back into place. I then repositioned the rack into the track and put the front stops back into place. Job finished!! My choice of terminology may not be accurate, but it worked, not once but twice. A few months ago, I had to do this with the left side.
