Help....noisy bedroom slide out

Probably a PowerGear. Have no info, except Living Room slide is a PowerGear. Single rack and pinion I see, looking thru a bed drawer that I removed. Have to remove Sleep Number bed to get to motor and other stuff. Really don't want to do that.

No noise coming inbound, but going out...the last one foot is noisy, i.e., rubbing or sticking. Almost a grinding noise, but not quite. Looked under the slide and see two areas about 6 inches wide, that look like it is rubbing on a nylon or teflon block/bushing ??). Can't lift up the slide seal to peek, but I poked around and something is there.

Measured the slide..... top and bottom on both ends ....and they are close all around, maybe 1/8 inch differences.

I was going to find some kind of lube to apply to the two areas under the slide I saw. Dunno....carnuba wax...a block of wax...dry slide lube...mineral oil...auto brake fluid.....silicone....talc/baby powder....ProtectAll 40003 dry slide lube.....

Any help would be appreciated.

Silicone spray on the support rails, under the bed, and the nylon blocks accessible on the outside, underside.

silicone spray helps, some like Mothers Carnuba on the bottom and sides of the box. someone rubbed candle wax on the box. anything helps it.

OK.....sprayed some dry lube on the rack/pinion via the removal of the drawer. Removed the rough areas on the bottom of the slide. Ran in and out few times. Sounds better...not perfect...and a little different. And some 303 Protect on the bottom slide seal.

No wax used and could not get to the nylon/teflon blocks.

you can see the nylon blocks if you pull down the slide seal on the bottom. I like Mothers Carnuba wax rubbed liberally on all sides of the box, I put it on with a cheep sponge mop then dont wipe it at all.

I did a good clean and wax job on the bottom and sides of the slide. Then with a rag soaked with silicone lube I pulled the seal out to get behind it and lubed both the insde and outside of the seal.
