Access under kitchen slide

Opened my kitchen slide and heard crunching, like wheels running over sand. I didn't find anything on the floor when if was fully opened so I was wondering if there are wheels under there and if it is possible to get to them some how to lube them? Didn't hear any noise when I retracted the slide.

No wheels that I'm aware of ... the slide just glides across the carpet and settles down in a pocket lined with teflon or similar. We had a small glass left by one of our recliners get caught between the wall and the slide facia while extending slides once ... made a terrible noise.

There are gears under the slide. The slide frame rolls over them when going in and out. They recommend using a dry lube. Not a grease to lube them.
Available at Walmart. Mine tend to squeak when they want attention.
You can see them from the under side of the slide.

What kind of dry lube do you use ? Sounds like good advice. Thanks

I had a screw get under mine and made a bad sound like the bottom of the black cover mat tearing but it only scratched it a little.
