Clips not moving back

He pushes the front clip and it won't slide back to the second clip
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 7 months ago.

It may just be a little jammed tap it lightly with a hammer or some tool you can get to it with and see if that will loosen it up some.

Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 7 months ago.

It just is not releasing, should not be this hard to get it to release
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Can't push white tab in an inch it only goes backward or forward
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
joel, it still just isn't releasing the tub
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 7 months ago.

no you push the white tab in and while holding it in you push the rail back an inch or more so that the tub comes off the rail.

Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 7 months ago.

you do that for each side of the drawer then lift the drawer out.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Not allowing movement at all
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 7 months ago.

ok well I will opt out and see if another expert might have any ideas to help.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Never seen anything like it! We have to be missing a step somewhere
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Well, we got it out, but there is additional step. Front must be removed first exposing the clips!
