    where can you buy those Philips screws which are holding the black plate where the GC controllers and Memcards connects?

    I´ve searched the net and didnt find a thing, just a replacement set where all other needed screws are in except the 3 Philips screws...

    Well, this is pretty complicated here where I live, I would appreciate if someone knows a Internet shop where I could order them, I dont care if I have to pay shipping costs.

    Please if anyone of you knows where I can get them, let me know.
    Thanks.

    Come on guys, somebody knows where I could get them, preferable online because I am located in Austria and where I live there arent much chances to get hands on the screws...

    Dont let me down.

    Thanks!

    I know thats just the name of the screws...

    Dont had any success at hardware stores, possibly there is somewhere a internet shop which sells them.

    Had a little look around. I found a set that had everything except those little black screws...

    I am also planning to buy replacement screws. I have destroyed the screws when taking off the dvd drive :S

    I guess you have to find a hardware store which can make custom screws for you...

    Wasnt me who scrambled my screws it was the guy who soldered the chip in for me :S

    I opened up yesterday to clean it because of lag problems (fixed now) the dvd drive screws are basically circle holes in them :S

    had to use a flat head screw driver and carve a new slot in XD

    you could try to take a Dremel tool to cut a small line on the top and turn them into flat head screws

    has worked for me in the past [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I thought I´d drop Nintendo support a mail about me needing the screws and hey, they gonna send it to me xD

    and on top of this, I´ll possibly get some of the original stickers for the screwholes too! Yay!!!

    Thanks Nintendo support!

    Besides, I´ve ordered those Talismoon Wii replacement feet and sticker set but this is kinda annoying... the stickers are to large and glossy, the feet arent white, they are more kinda dirtwhite... damn this is real lost money...

    I love Nintendo support in Austria, the guys sent me the stickers for the front Triwing screwholes and 2 feet.

    As I wrote before, I bought this replacement sticker set by Talismoon and it sucks.

    The stickers are too big, the feet aren´t white, they are more dirty white, a little yellow WTF?

    Thanks Nintendo support Stadelbauer I got what I needed. And the best thing, I didnt have to pay a cent =D
