I have an old MFI kitchen, still ok but the runner on the drawer has gone and MFI no longer keep the part. I'm looking for a replacement, any suggestions?

The runner is a side fitting 27mm high, 10mm depth (draw recess to side wall in other words). Extension is 340mm and these runners are 280 when closed but I have 450mm on the drawer and the cabinet has 550 so length is not a problem.

Thanks for tip. Meanwhile I had found a post in screwfix's forums that also suggested woodfit. I ordered some and can confirm the BR325 is a replacement.

The cabinet screw holes are different. The back one lines up so all I did was draw a line through the 3 existing cabinet holes. Fit the slide with just the back screw. Mark through the front slide holes onto my screw hole line. Pilot drill, then screw. Job done. The drawer screw hole is also in a slightly different place but the slide position has plenty of movement scope so that is not a problem. Thread is same. The drawer now comes out a bit further, about 1in, but not >100% so it still looks ok. You only notice if you pull 2 drawers out together so no big deal.
Are the draw runner sit on the bottom of the draw or in the middle of the groove?

Okay too late! I got quite a few bottom draw runners in my workshop, just fit them on the bottom edge of the draw, anyway don't forget to do a regular spray of WD40 on the runners.
I looked at changing to bottom runners (and side runners, from B&Q). Problem is that most runners these days need 12.5mm between drawer and cabinet side. That's 5mm more than a pair of these. You have the same problem side or bottom, either shrink the drawer or shave some off, weaking the drawer. The ones from woodfit are the better option :D
