Make my Ikea bed stop squeaking + fix my draw

I can see some jokes being cracked about this post...

Due to my inability to assemble Ikea furniture, there's some **** gone loose under my bed and every time I roll over in the night I get to enjoy a lovely song that slightly resembles the "Christmas with the Chipmunks Vol. 1".

What you need to do for this task:
- Transport yourself to my house in Forest Lodge (near Glebe)
- Masters in Engineering or knowledge of how to use a screwdriver (either will suffice)
- Figure out what the **** the problem is
- Squirt some WD40 on it or tighten something up (I have tools, but it's BYOWD40)
- If you don't fix the issue then I'll still pay the accepted amount for the "run" as negotiated and agreed upon

- Ikea draw
- One of the sides has kind of broken, and I don't think it can be fixed by simply screwing it back in
- I have super glue at home that I've bought to do a hack job to fix it - you can tackle the problem however you like

If you fix the issues, you will receive a bonus 6 pack of beer of your choice (but I suppose you could have cash instead...if you want)

You are also given permission to make as many wisecracks as you see fit, either relating to my squeaky bed or my inability to figure out the problem myself.

This task must take place at a time convenient for me, like after 7.30pm in the evening or before 12pm on a weekend. It probably won't take long for someone who isn't a moron.

9-10ish tomorrow morning is perfect! Just text me in the morning. And yes, liquid nails is something that sounds pretty awesome. Will send photo of the draw tonight.
Early Saturday (9-10ish) is looking suitable for me.
Hi, happy to have a look at it as well. I have liquid nails which will be much better than super glue as super glue is quite brittle. If you can send a picture of the drawer that would be helpful.

Hi Steven - I just added another task to this, let me know if this is still achievable in the same time.
Happy to have a look at this for you. I'm free tonight if you like. I live nearby so it's not too far out of my way. I hate squeaks too so I'm the man for this task.
