Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers, Nutdriver, Kroll - penetrating oil; channel lock pilers, never seize
Bottom tray rails were corroded due to age (~17 years) - Weber Genesis gas grill
The old rails were made of carbon steel. The new rails are made of aluminum. The pre-drilled holes and supplied screws were a perfect fit. The most difficult part was removing the old screws. One was removed with a nut driver the others were gripped with channel locks and removed. I sprayed krol penetrating oil on the screws and allowed it to soak for about 30 minutes. I suspect a longer soak time (overnight) may have loosed the rust making it easier to remove these screws. Prior to installing the new screws, I applied never seize to them. This should eliminate the corrosion issue should they need to be replaced in the future.

Time Spent Repairing:

Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers, Socket set, Vice grips
Bottom tray rails and screws were completely rusted.
Sprayed screws with WD40 & let it sit for a week. The rails & screws were rusted in place so bad I had to use vice grips to get them out. When I finally got a grip on the screws I worked them back and forth with the vice grips and they finally loosened up enough to back them out. This grill is 20 years old so I expected to spend more time to repair it. Weber makes a tough well built grill. The aluminum bottom tray rails & screws fit perfectly. Thanks Replacementparts.com !!!

Soaked the rusted screws with WD-40 a few times, then I was able to remove them. Once I had the rails removed, I cleaned up all around the area. Then simply installed the new ones.

Original bottom tray rails had deteriorated so much that they no longer could support the tray.
Simply squirted some W-D 40 on the original screws that held the rails in place. Used a small socket to break them free and backed them out. Replaced the rails with what I ordered and rehung the tray. Done deal!

Replacement rails were a bit lighter grade than the original, Excellent price, very nice young customer service gal and prompt delivery! Perfect! :-)

Rails for bottom tray disintegrated, bottom tray fell onto lower rack
Bought this Weber Genesis 1000 new in the Spring of 1996. Once a year I disassemble, clean and repair/replace parts that have gone bad. This has included the igniter, flavorizer bars, grill cooking surface, opening handle and (three times) all wood parts on flat table surfaces. (Finally resorted to Trex decking lumber to eliminate staining and rot; cut material to size on table saw.) When the rails for the bottom tray gave out, I thought my Weber might finally need replacement. But no, new tray rails from eReplacementParts solved the problem in less than 15 minutes. Remove four hex-head screws and the remaining parts of the old rails, insert new rails with enclosed four new screws. Done. After a good cleaning, some repainting and a coat of wax for the hood, my Weber looks like new...and works that way too. Twenty years down, hopefully 20 more to go,

Question: Bottom Tray Rails With Hdwre

Partincom

What hdwre comes with rails?

Hello Partincom,

It looks like the 2 rails and 4 sheet metal screws is everything in the Weber 97783 Bottom Tray Rails With Hardware. I guess 4 sheet metal screws is considered hardware.

    Simple part, easy installation
    The bottom tray rail assembly arrived in good condition and soon after I placed the order. It came with new screws so damaging the old screws to remove them didn't matter. Everything fit as it was supposed to.
