Hi Hukd'ers

Following on from my post yesterday requesting a good deal on a new DS console deal (no replies)
Has anyone tried fitting a replacement shell as sold on the well known auction site?
Any tips or recommendations please on which one to buy, tips on dismantling and reassembling etc

Thanks in advance

ive done a ds replacement.

quite easy and loads of guides on youtube

just remember to have some extra timer for a first timer.

Get the proper screwdrivers and you are all set
My advice is not to use the replacement buttons or bumpers as they are usually quite crap. As breville stated just get yourself the screwdrivers you need (small phillips and a triwing)

good guide HERE
there was a deal posted for whsmith instore for ds lite but pink ones i believe at £60.
Thanks everyone for your comments..
Have ordered a new DS to replace the damaged one, and have
ordered a new shell/case to repair the old one. It's worth a try
at £9 for a replacement case..

Have watched the clips on youtube and as you say if I allow myself
plenty of time I should be ok..

Thanks again
