Slide Rollers Wearing

Have a 2014 3850FL. Front slides are cable driven.
Three rollers under each slide some are rolling, some are not. Causing the top of the white roller to wear flat.
Need to change out. Looks like I can raise slide and get 90 degree screw drive to replace. Two screws in front and two in back.
Anyone ever deal with this?

I noticed mine were not rolling when the slide was going in/out (used a sharpie and drew a line across them to tell).
I was able to get a socket on the axle bolt and loosen it up a couple of turns, then sprayed a little oil between the axle bolt and the roller.

Thanks for sharpie idea, mine don't have a nut to loosen. Wish it did

This is exactly the reason i came on here today, my kitchen slide is bouncing, for lack of a better term, over one of the rollers instead of rolling. actually wore the black fiberglass off above the roller down to bare wood.
Im going to take a look and see if im as lucky as Daryles, if not, any idea on where to get one of those 90 degree screw drivers? Or how to get to the 2 screws on the other side of the roller?

That stuff on the bottom of your kitchen slide is a fabric called darco.
Do a forum search for “darco fix” and you will find an excellent solution.
You might find the write up in the FILES section of the forum.
I don’t know if the write up addresses roller issues however.
