    So when you first open your wii you need to take the 3 screws for the gamecube top thing off. Well my screws are messed up and won't come put.
    Any help resolving this problem?

    what exactly are you trying to accomplish? gamecube stuff is on a hinged door, fully accessable......
    ....my bad.
    you need a tri-wing screwdriver.

    I know that. The female part of the screw is broken.

    Triwing screws won´t come out until a gentle pressure yet a soft twist occurs. They´re quite special, hence why the triwing is required here.

    If all else fails, you could cut the screws using a dremel tool with a blade attachment, and shear off the heads.....
