In MOST cases you can change the runner. It's ideal to replace it with the same brand to match up the rivet holes, but most skate shops can re-drill for whatever runner you want to put on. Call around to your local rink(s) to see if they do that kind of work. I found a rink about a half hour away that would do it for about $15/skate - and they did a great job.

pull off door cover, unhook all wires. drill out rivets that hold it in, unhook the window motor (if not before) pull all the way forward then all the way back to pull it off track. remove where it fits. remove motor from regulator. when replacing, DO NOT USE regular pop rivets. use steel rivets or bolts. anything but steel rivets will break off. reverse procedure.
