    Howdy folks,

    I have two 3DS belonging to my son's that need their L+R Buttons replaced. This is the second attempt at repairing as the last repair meant that I simply used Super Servisol to clean them out without opening the consoles up.

    Now they are gone again I need to replace them for a more permanent solution.
    I was going to gift my own 3DS to one son and buy the other a new one for Christmas but I'd rather not as I'd prefer to keep my own console. Plus my two kids' consoles I'm wanting to repair are ambassador consoles, so they have all the games that came with that program.

    I've been looking on fleabay but I'm always wary and was hoping if someone could recommend a good reliable vendor from whom to purchase the L+R/shoulder buttons from.

    Most of the vendors with at least 1000 sales and over 95% are trustworthy. Can't give anymore details without a model however (O3DS or N3ds) (Regular or XL).

    If you ended up getting new consoles for whatever reason, you should be able to system transfer to keep the ambassador games.
