The cables are what moves the slide with the system you have . Yes they are adjustable and should have about a 1/2 play when you grab the cable in the middle and move it up and down . care needs to be taken when adjusting the cables that the in cable does not fight against the out cable and vise versa

Read my thread Stuck in my Driveway with a dead living room slide motor.

I had a loose wire. But I did learn how to adjust the cables. see videos below:
