Removing Drawers (no, not like that...)

I have asked before and have been told that the kitchen drawer in my 2306 can be removed. I have tried several times and have not been successful. I see little black 'buttons' on each side of the slides, and I've tried pressing them, but still no dice...

We had a bowl go over the back of the drawer and down to the bottom of the cabinet and had to rig up a clothes hanger to fish it out because the drawer wouldn't come out.

Any additional instruction would be great!

On my WJ, when you have the drawer all the way out to it's stop, there are little black tabs on each side, if you look carefully you will see they are the same part just mounted upside down compared to the other side. Push one tab up and the other goes down and that releases it.

Maybe I'm a complete idiot, but I have tried this twice now, and still no luck... Grrrr!

Does anyone have pictures or even a short video?

As already stated the little black tabs or button is the key here. The first time that the buttons are pushed it is a little hard to press them in far enough to get them to release. So either push the levers as stated you should be able to see the black button or tab move toward the center of the drawer or push the button until the same. Then pull out on the drawer while you are pushing the tabs and it will come all the way off the slide.

I spent a good 30 minutes messing with mine before I figured it out. I could get one side to release but not the other. Finally figured out that the little black tabs were opposite on each side. One I pushed up on, and the other down. Then the drawer would come out.

On a side note I was taking mine out to try and figure why it won't catch and stay closed like the others. Never did figure that out.

Thanks to everyone here, I figured out the error of my ways... I was pressing the wrong buttons.

These were the buttons I was pressing:

I finally figured out its actually these buttons:

And here's what I was trying to access. The large drawer isn't supported very well on the left side, which allows it to "shift" to one side and bind when you open it. I saw another member on here who screwed and glued a support block to the left upright, so I did the same. It help immensely.
