Despite the fact that they appear glued in place, I believe they remove
in the same manner as the TU81 and other cabinets. I have had some that
were very difficult to get off. I find that a flat pry bar (nail
puller) placed under the side and prying against the horizontal lip on
the under frame near the wheels will break the side panel loose from the
brackets it hangs on.

I have had to use quite a bit of force on some of the cabinets to get
the sides off. After removing them for the first time, they seem to go
on and off easily.
