    I just got my GBA Expansion in the mail and was excited to try it out.
    Everything seems to work dandy, except..

    Why does mine stick out just the tiniest bit? Is it supposed to be like that?
    Is there anyone to fix it? It just ruins the sleekness of my DS!

    my rumble pak fits perfectly (not sticking out)
    however the gba rumble pak needed to be taken apart and realigned for it to fit perfectly

    How did you manage to realigned it, I'm interested ... [​IMG]
    And did you meant "gba rumble pak" or "gba pak" (because m3 don't make gba + rumble paks).
    The underlying question is : do you have THE m3 "gba exp pak" or an other one (like EZ 3-in-1) ?

    And how did you manage to realign it ?
    Any miraculous image tutorial ? (I know I'm asking a lot ... but a I'm not really fond of manipulating this small tiny thing like that)

    well I noticed when I got the pak the actual inside green PCB was tilting in one direction
    it would cause the cart to stick out and generally be flush on one end and slightly sticking out on the other

    just unscrew the cart and push it apart and just make sure it straight and stays straight when you screw it back together

    tried this, but didn't exactly work. I'm pretty sure it's straight, but for some reason it still sticks a bit on one side.

    I'll try to do it, but I doubt it'll completely solve my case, because the cart doesn't stick out more in a direction than the other, it globally sticks out a bit...
    And I've noticed a strange electronical component that I couldn't identify and I suspect it to be the cause of all this. The component is round, flat but very large...
    Well thank you anyway! [​IMG]
