    Are there any replacements for the rubber of the analog stick? The other day I lent my 3DS to my cousin and when I noticed, the analog stick had been damaged as in the rubber had been cut and a bit was missing, is there any way to replace that rubber? On a side note, does anyone know where I can get the Cyber Slide Pad covers? They'd be handy for this as well.

    Well if you fail to find a replacement you could probably buy a circle pad pro and replace the pad that way?

    I've searched a bit but I could only find replacements for the slider mechanism and not the rubber piece.

    I have the CPP and well, it wouldn't be worth it to buy a CPP just for the rubber. z.z

    Depends on how damaged it is, if it's almost coming off then at least I would consider getting a used one.

    There are also analog cover pads for the 3DS. Maybe not a permanent solution, but cheap and will work in the meantime until you can find a fix.

    I'm afraid not. Someone on this forum posted pics and a link a while back, but I don't know what website it is... I'm sure a google search would turn up something.

    The ones I know of, that were also previously mentioned in the forums were the Cyber Slide Pad covers, however they're only available on Japanese retailers, and even on those it's out of stock for the most part.

    Those were the ones I was talking about, actually.
