I bought this case because the right hinge on the DS Lite was broken. Looks cool and my son is well chuffed with his "new" unique DS.
Took five hours to complete the changeover. Some hints. Download the tutorial pics off this web site. use a digi camera to take photos of the thing as you take it to bits. Getting the case back on needs all the cables to be back in their original posisitions.
Watch out for the little springs on the triggers. If they spring off they can go anywhere (at least 20% of my time was spent finding one of the little b****** that went AWOL!)
Make sure you line up the power and volume switches properly when you put the back case back on. If you don't you can break the switch on the motherboard! Having done it once could do it again in much less time it is not that complicated.
Outcome is that for not much money and a bit of time (which is a useful learning experience) an unservicable DS is being enjoyed again. <br>Self tappers are very hard to get back in fully and this is all that stops me from giving it full marks. I ordered an NDS screwdriver because the website said it wasn't included and the kit came with one so I now have two!
