We accidentally damaged the garage door. The thing broken is a vertical angle iron that was attached to the middle of the top panel. The garage door opener arm is fixed onto this iron and thus drags the door. (Please see pictures below.)

My questions are:
* What is this angle iron called?
* Where can I buy this?
* If fixing it by myself is impossible, would I have luck with local garage door repair businesses? How much might be the cost? Any recommendations? I live in Grapevine, TX.

I have tried Sears, Lowes, HomeDepot, ACE, but can only find the parts that are included in garage door openers.

I don't want to replace the whole door. If replacing the top panel (I am assuming the broken part will come together with the panel) is an option, that would work. The door model is Windsor 430.

This is the door. You can see the vertical iron is missing.

This is the arm of the garage door opener. It was connected to the iron.

Call this company: Garage Doors and Garage Door Openers by Overhead Door Corporation They have a franchise in Grapevine that will happily fix your door. You usually can't buy garage door parts from a retail store, as you have found. Good luck!
