    I would like to know if there is a way to replace the wii's dvd loading mechanism because my mechanism is broken but only a very small part. I dont want to have to replace the whole drive or send it to nintendo and pay 80 bucks. So any help would be appreciated like a place to buy the part or if u have a spare maybe we could arrange a transaction of some sort. thank you! [​IMG]

    P.S.- heres a pic of the specific part that is broken (the part that broke is marked with a circle):

    If it's only a mechanical part which is broken, did you try a good glue, 2 component glue for example?

    yes, its only a mechanical part that broke off. The problem is that i cant find the broken piece (it was not inside the wii for some reason) so there is nothing to glue. what would be my alternatives besides buying a new drive for about 80 bucks or sending it to Nintendo for about the same amount. thanks
