    my dad works for nintendo.
    i repaired my ds lite, i think its the same thing... if the button is "clicky" the spring is not really needed

    if you dont want to get another spring i suggest you to remove the spring from the L button too so you will not feel a diference between the 2 buttons, the spring is not really needed but makes the thing feel better...

    You could use a spring from a lighter I reckon,
