Slide binding and jerky when operating

HI guy's
I have a problem with my R side "pass kitchen slide" hwh X type system,
When operating slide it is very noisy and jerky "Its like it is hanging up somewhere" I have checked to see if anything got under the the slide but it seems all ok
I am led to believe that they have a roller under the slide, so i decided to go in there and replace it or at least check it but came to a road block.
Has anyone replaced the roller or does anyone know how to get at it???
There is no way i can see how to do it from inside so i decided to remove the weather seal on the outside to gain access but after removing the screws i cant remove the metal strip due to the slide having sagged in the middle I jacked up the slide using a 2X6 and a floor jack but it only lifts a fraction and i still cant remove the strip. The problem is at the center of the slide due to the sag
Has anyone had this experience???

Help!! Dave

I can tell you that there are 4 rollers on my kitchen slide because of the marks on the floor.

Not sure, but my guess is you will need to unmount the box from the mechanics so you can tilt the outside down to raise the inside for access.

Can you look in the bottom of the cabinets to if there is a structural problem.

Sounds like a roller came off or broke apart.

There are USB cameras you can get on ebay for $13 which are small enough to fit under the floor of the slide box.
