    You can get a case replacement kit (various on google or ebay) it can be a bit tricky and you need a special hex (i think screwdriver) to do it but i know people who have done it ok.

    they sell the case on here but dont know how easy it is to do

    its fiddly but not impossible loads of vids on utube too, costs no more than a tenner for the case and screwdriver from deal extreme

    The phat DS is fairly easy to do.
    The lite is quite tricky.

    I have repaired three so far, as above poster says, buy case from Dealextreme or Focalprice .You will also need a pair of screwdrivers (also Dealextreme or Focalprice) , it can be fiddly but take your time & be careful, it can be done.

    You will need both screwdrivers on this page focalprice.com/goo…ow=
    Sorry can`t link to Dealextreme, site down. :thumbsup:
