    Hello, i was following a tutorial here regarding switching motherboards so that i can have a new case for my o3dsxl. I'm up to the part starting at 23:28 where i have to reassemble the flex on the top right that is attached to the top screen. There are 3 cables and it is extremely hard to connect them. As of this moment i have a metal tweezer and a small screw driver but i don't want to damage the cables. Whenever i try, i have to tug a good amount to even get the right distance to put it in. I'm afraid if i creased it a little, should i buy better tweezers , like a plastic or rubber tipped one? How would i approach this without breaking it? I've spent a lot of time on this and I just want my 3ds back.
    Heres a picture of the three ribbon cables even though you can see it on the video
    thanks in advance
