    not sure if anyone can help but here is the problem..

    basically the doors don't go up all the way...so basically if i was to drive a pick up truck into my garage the roof would hit the doors. is there a way to get it so the doors go all the way back?

    Getting a car and even my wife's Nissan Rogue is fine but anything bigger would hit the doors so i want to know how to fix this.

    Springs stretched out/saggy?

    Is it an electric door or manual?

    pull down on the handle up near the door opener so it disconnects it from the door, then try to open it all the way up.

    Open up the side... there's how far up and how far down settings, as well as how many psi it takes before it moves back up (as in, someone getting caught under it)

    Had a pro garage door guy come over last night....they are as high as they can go because i have a support beam in my garage and they could not move the motors back far enough when they were installed. He said there is a system i can buy and he could install for $500 total cost for 1 of the doors that will allow it to go all the way up.

    Good news is he said i pretty much had the best doors on the market, HOSS or HASS or something like that. Not really sure what that means but he seemed impressed.

    I'll most likely be getting a new truck next year. My wife's Rogue's lease is up and we'll give that back and she will take my Infiniti and I will get a truck or even possibly a 4Runner or Cherokee Laredo.

    Reminds me of black guys with a mouthful of bling mixed with an alien/sea creature.

    It's #1 on my list. Not sure i will be able to afford a new one because im going to want a close to fully loaded one and only the 5.7Iforce engine. Yes im that picky. Deal with it(people)

    This probably won't happen until next summer so hopefully i can get a 2011ish with around 40k on it. Right now they are still going for 37kish

    They're not that expensive brand new. But once you add the bells and whistles, they get pricey.


    I love the current generation. I'd do the same as you if I had a place to put a second vehicle.

    Welcome to owning a home.... where you keep finding where the builder or previous owner cut corners.
