Hackers Help: Can I shorten the KOMPLEMENT drawer runners?

I’m planning to retrofit an existing wardrobe with Komplement drawers. Unfortunately the cavity is only 53cm deep, so the drawers for the 58cm Pax do not look like they will fit – or will they, ie. does someone have the exact drawer dimensions?

It seems such a waste of space to only use the drawers for the 35er bodies…

I am happy to embark on a shortening exercise of the drawers – which for the body of the drawer should not be a problem. However, will I be able to shorten the KOMPLEMENT drawer runners easily or will this be a major hassle?

Thoughts anyone?

Many thanks
