Replacement DS Lite Shoulder Button?

My R button seems to be a little bit sluggish and only works sporadically. I've tried the "blowing" method (yep!) but it hasn't worked.

Any idea how much these are to have replaced, and is it an easy thing to do yourself?

Details of any reputable repair places would be good too. Many thanks in advance.

its a little rubber button that is probably pushed in an not popped back out, you can take it apart easy enough but just be sure you dont lose the two springs that sit on the l and R triggers (although they will still work without the springs the triggers wont feel quite right)_

I love it when someone asks for advice then just disappears:thumbsup:

All looked good til you mentioned losing the springs, I'm rubbish with small things. So a professional repair looks like the only way forward. Been quoted £25 so far which seems steep, what do you think?

And thanks for the advice. Had non-HUKD things to do today.

Its steep when you can do it yourself rather easily, but youll need a triwing screwdriver so its up to you

That screwdriver sounds very Star Wars-y! Have found a bloke that will do it locally for £18, and his advert says he's been fixing PCs and the like for 25 years so I'm gonna not do it myself for once.

Thanks for the advice though, rep left.
