Wildwood 230 BHXL Drawer Removal

I've seen posts telling how to remove drawers but in looking at mine, I don't see the things to push up on one side and down on the other side to remove. Here is my drawer with the left side and right side. Left has a very flimsy plastic piece sticking out but not very sturdy looking while the right side has nothing like I've read about.
Anyone know how to remove these drawers?

I only have the small lever on one side. Not sure if it just broke off on the other side or not. The one on the left side looks like it could break easily. We're at home now and the slide is in which makes it difficult for me to get down and up (old bones aren't as flexible any more). But I'll try to check it out before the cold weather gets here.
Thanks Fonzie for the link to the video.

It looks like you press in on the "little black thing" on the left side as you are pulling the drawer out. You can see that the holding edge is abrupt (right angle) but there's a taper on the other edge so you don't have to touch it when putting the drawer back in.

Update

Don't know why I did not check the slide on my lower drawer before but I didn't until this morning. (Actually it was because it was so low and difficult on the knees and back anymore ). But today I checked and see It has the plastic "lever" on both sides. Since neither drawer has ever been removed, I guess the piece has been broken off since day one.
Thanks to everyone for commenting.

Final Update

Well, I took both drawers out this afternoon. Strangest thing on drawer with the missing lever - It turned out not to be missing. Just could not be seen until I got the drawer out. It apparently was wedged up in the track somehow. But, once removed, I was able to reach the back support plywood panel that the back of the drawer slides attached to. The back plywood for the upper drawer was just floating and had never been secured except for one screw on the far left side which allowed it to wobble once the drawer was pulled out. When fully pushed in, the drawer sat askew and you had to wiggle it into a fully closed position. Found several screws very loose also on slide tracks at side and back so I tightened all of them. Things are much better now.
