does anyone know the secret to removing drawers that have the white center guide that is exposed about half way from the back to the front of the drawer? this particular drawer bank is in an older southwind under the close closet.

Try pulling the drawer towards you till it reaches the stops. Then tip the drawer up and pull towards you some more, then tip it down and it should come free. I think there is a little wheel attached to the bottom back side of the drawer that rides in the track and will come out of the track through a small opening in the track using the method I described. Good luck- Steve

With the single center guide usually just pulling strait out works.When it reaches the stop just keep pulling.It is a friction fit.

There could also be a slide-trip under the drawer. Feel under to see if you can push up on the trip while pulling out the drawer to release it from the track...IMHO, of course

There are several different styles of drawer retainers and some of them have been mentioned here. If none of those work, feel along the back, top, edge of the drawer. Sometimes there is a vertical post that acts as a retainer. If so, some of them flip down to allow removal and others have to be physically removed (unscrewed).

Thank you all for your suggestions. They inspired me to take more time understanding the issue. I knew there had to be a trick. It turns out that the white plastic guide is attached to the drawer bottom and that there is a nearly invisible portion in th ecenter that looks imoveable. When the drawer is extended you can reach between the guide sides and slightly push up on the white plastic partion annnd wala, the drawer comes out. Thanks again.
