I'm trying to see if I can identify if my door spring has broken or it my problem is related to the balancing cable.

 

I wasn't there when the problem happend but my wife reported a  banging sound.    Now when the door is lowered it does seem to go down faster than before but does not slam down.  The most noticible issue is a binding during the last 10 degrees of door motion when it is opening.

 

Is there a way to tell which issue I have without opening it up?

 

Thanks

One side of the door spring or cable has broken.  I always go ahead and gut the door support system on both sides and give it a clean, fresh start.

Turned out petty good. The culprit was a broken plastic nib on the right side pulley assembly. It normally keeps the top of the assembly in place but when it's not there, the top pivoted forward and messed up the tension. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

Well done, ndzied1.  Did you notice the engineering change on the guide.  Went from glide to pulley.
