    Since a few months ago my circle pad has been pretty loose, today it started to bother me much more when it just couldn't stick in place anymore. [​IMG] so, whats the best thing to do? Can I glue it somehow or should I buy a replacement pad? And will replacement pads stick perfectly?

    My pad did that for awhile until i super glued it(do that only if you want to). I haven't had anymore problems since.
    But u could buy a replacement. They hold pretty well.

    Did you use any special kind of glue? Or just plastic superglue

    You could either stay that way, because, even though it's broken, it's still usable, you could try gluing it, but I don't think that'll work, or you could try putting it back on place, which, though hard, can be the best option

    a replacement would be good too

    I used gorilla glue and it holds pretty well still. You could try to use regular but i wouldn't recommend that.
    I don't know if plastic superglue will work but u can try.

    Ask the ladies in your family if they have any nail glue. It holds plastic together really well (that's what it's designed for, after all)
    I used it to repair the control stick on a 3rd party N64 controller once. The stick was a metal rod with a plastic piece glued to the top of it, I lost the original plastic piece so I found something that fit well enough and used nail glue to glue it, and it held up very well, and still holds up to this day although I don't play on my N64 anymore.

    Mine is cracking in half. I will need a replacement soon. Anyone know a cheap spot to get them?
