It is possible to replace most dresser drawer slides and if you are confident using basic hand tools, it's fairly easy to do. First, you need to determine what kind of slides the drawer has. It's best to take a drawer to a hardware store so they can help you choose the right slides for the project and offer advice.

For most dressers, this should be pretty simple - just some wooden pieces that fit into notches under your drawers. You can probably find some DIYs on the net.

Yes, it is possible to replace dresser-drawer-slides. Many big box home improvement stores and local hardware stores carry new metal drawer slide kits, the alternative is to have custom matching wooden drawer slides fabricated on a router. The difficult part is usually carefully lining up the (2)mating parts of the slides before attaching them to the drawer and dresser.

It is possible to replace dresser drawer slides. You would first take out the old drawer and see what kind of slide mechanism's it has. Depending on those factors this job could be relatively easy to moderately difficult. It all depends if you can access the slides from inside the cabinet or the outside of it.
