pantry slide replacement

The bottom slide for the pantry storage rack on my 2011 Solera S is dead. Heavily rusted, missing ball bearings... there's no repairing it. Can't seem to find replacement slide hardware. Anyone have any leads?

Search "drawer slides" on Amazon.com. They have side mount and bottom mount. Get ones that can support the weight if you fill it with canned goods.

When you go to Amazon look for the Fulterer brand. It is a more expensive line, but it is really a well made slide mechanism.

I added two more sets of glides to my Forester pantry. I ordered them from Forest River thru the dealer. Home Depot would have ordered them, but I decided to go thru dealer. Made the pantry much easier to open and close. These added more weight bearing. Avery worth while mod.

Your best bet is to contact FR directly and explain what you need, they should be able to direct you to the supplier they used for the Solera.

(574) 206-7600 also listed in the owner's manual 574-296-7700. One of those should get you to customer service.

Make sure you have your VIN number when ordering.
