    Hi all
    My analog stick on the 3ds started giving up on me recently and I'm looking to buy a spare part.

    I can prefer buy it from amazon.com or eBay.com specifically from sellers who ship from USA but if there is some other site better for parts and they ship FROM USA please do post.

    So far I have found these links but I don't really know how reliable the sellers are, so I need some advice.

    Link 1:
    http://www.amazon.com/Original-Anal...20&sr=8-17&keywords=nintendo+3ds+analog+stick

    Link 2:
    http://www.amazon.com/Original-Anal...981&sr=8-6&keywords=nintendo+3ds+analog+stick

    Link 3:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Analog-3D-B...373?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d52a19b9d

    Please do let me know what you all think of the above 3 links, and if there are better sellers on Amazon or eBay or any other site please do post.

    Those sellers all seem fine, but I think the analog sticks they have listed are third-party replacement parts. I'm not sure if the difference between the original and a third-party replacement would even be noticeable, but if you prefer an original Nintendo analog stick, then I can recommend buying from gamepartsstore10 on eBay. They ship from New Jersey and all the 3DS parts I've bought from them have been original.

    Here's the part: http://www.ebay.com/itm/300734056466

    to be honest I've gotten a bunch of those listings that ship from China and claim to be "original" (they could be, for all I know) and they've been excellent. better than the originals on a brand new console imo

    It's just that they are kinda expensive ($10 or $12) for one part !
    But the seller that smilecitrus mentioned is selling an original ( I hope at least ) Nintendo part for a much lower price.

    ALL of these are non-original third-party parts, you won't find original parts for sale anywhere - nintendo supplies them only to authorised repair centers. But they will work fine, its a very simple thingy so it doesn't really matter.

    Apparently you can use the one from a Circle Pad Pro.
