    I wasn't sure if this is a problem or not. I really don't feel like trying to exchange my Xbox 360 if it's not BROKEN...

    I just got it yesterday, the one that came with Lego Indiana Jones and Kung Fu Panda. I'm enjoying it so far... but when I went to look at "memory unit A", the spring came undone and now the cover is just sitting there. Unit B, however, is in place.

    Anyone else have that happen? I'm taking it as a loose spring, which I'm sure is easily fixed. Would going up to step 3 on this work? Or is it an actual build problem that I need to exchange? (I also noticed that the left control stick on the included wireless controller squeaks... I could probably use some WD-40 on it or something but for now I'm just ignoring how irritating it sounds when I play games)

    What do you guys recommend? I don't mind prying the cover off and trying to re-attach the spring if that's what the problem is... but if it's something more serious I may as well just exchange it. (I know it's minor, but I'm anal about stuff not being broken off on my consoles... especially because I've only had it for a day!!)

    Just pop the faceplate off, you can literally just rip it off by grabbing where the usb plugs are. There are like 8 clips. From that you should be able to fix the spring, if it's still there. This will not void any warranty.
