repair sliding shower screen

Hi, I am rather new at all this and operating without a budget really, but....

I have a old glass sliding shower screen across a long shower space with shower heads at either end.

 The space has walls on three sides and the fourth side is a fixed glass panel and sliding door in a frame. The shower screen no longer slides very well. I have taken the door off and there are little wheels that sit in a groove in a frame along the top of the fixed panel. The wheels are a little loose and wobble. I am wondering if replacing the wheels might help the door to slide.

Is it possible to find these sorts of wheels? I am guessing the door is way older than what would be available in shops at the moment.

Would appreciate any suggestions!

I suggest taking the wheel assembly to Bunnings and speak to the either the plumbing or hardware specialist. If there are no spares perhaps a compatible wheel might work. We will only find out if we ask. Remember you can ask any question, its when you don't ask that you get all frustrated.

Is there any way of showing some pics so we can see? - I use to work for several Glass companies and every shower screen that came in for repair was not what we stocked - so be very careful ...
