    I'm about to change the analog in my new 3ds xl because it hasn't been responding correctly lately and since I'm gonna change that I was wondering if I can change the circle pad with that of an old 3ds model

    No. They're not cross compatible. o3DSXL and n3DSXL have different sized diameter circle pad. One of them sits too low hitting the shell.

    well that's something new.
    I always thought that new 3ds and old 3ds circlepads were alike size-wise.

    I'm having the problem of not finding one for the n3ds. Anyone have a link to one?
