Kitchen cabin drawers sliders are broken?

My kitchen cabin drawers sliders are broken so I tried to remove the drawers but it didn't work. How do I remove the drawers so I can replace the sliders? Thx

I couldn't tell from the pic but generally you have to hold the slide/guide in place or out of the way so the drawer can come out.

Sometimes the drawer has to be tilted up or down at the end to release it from the guide.

Full-Ext Drawer Slide Side Mount

I found that the drawers are still loose. Can I install the Full-Ext Drawer Slide Side Mount onside the drawers instead? Name:  side drawrs.jpg

You can change the slides, but any side mount slide requires 1/2" clearance and you may not have that.
The side 1/2" is critical and can only be larger by maybe 1/16" or less and cannot be smaller than 1/2".
There are slides that only require 5/16" at sides, but harder to install and expensive. They are the Blum Tandem Slides or what they call Smart Motion. The drawer pulls itself in.
