    hello all ,

    my daughters nintendo ds ( phat version ) has a broken hinge on the right hand side , if i buy a replacement shell ( phat version ) is it easy enough to rebuild the nintendo ds using a new shell ?

    the nintendo ds still works perfect but it has a broken hinge and i would like to fix it by using a replacement shell.

    i am used to opening up xboxes but have never opened a ds is it easy enough .

    thanx for any replies , woof811.

    make sure you have a tiny little screwdrivers, and do it on the floor, with no clutter lying around, coz those wee screws & springs like playing hide & seek.
    .
    took me about 3 hours the 1st time.
    good luck.
