How do I mend a broken hinge on DS Lite?

HI guys,

My dslite has been dropped and the right hand (power indicator) hinge has snapped off.
The ds itself works perfectly and I know you can simply click it back in but it has snapped off from the bottom of the ds lite.
If there is no easy way to repair then does anyone know a good way to keep the top screen open without it flopping about?

Thanks

Cheapest place for spares is [url]www.dealextreme.com[/url] but they aint fast at sending things. If you are in a rush, look elsewhere. To see videos on how to do it, YouTube has heaps (you have to waid through the **** right enough).

If you get stuck, think I have a link to a good one.
