Need to replace or repair kitchen drawer slide
 
I have a "Quaker Maid" kitchen drawer with a broken roller on the left slide.

The slide looks like this, but on the other side:

Is there any source for a replacement for this, or some way of replacing that roller? Quaker Maid sent me a "replacement" which is of completely different style and say the style I need is no longer available.

It would be easier to just replace the drawer guide. It's a standard guide sold in lumberyards and big box stores. You just need to check out the extension length. Some are 3/4 and some are full extension. Full is better as the whole drawer is visable, but get what you like.
The wheels will be harder to get and match.

Remove the roller from the one they sent you and rivet back on to the frame with the broken one.

Thanks, I will remove the slide and take it around town when I have a day off.
