The D-Pad of my 3ds XL is not working correctly. Pressing -> (right) has sometimes no effect and sometimes double the effect, meaning that it works like pressing once acts like two or three inputs. It is especially annoying where a single input is necessary, like switching tools in ACNL.

Will this solve my problem? The plastic cross is not broken, I don't know about the rubber underneath as I have not opened it yet, it seems rather awkward to reach the dpad, I only wanna do it if I absolutely have to.

You shouldn't need a new d pad, you can clean the one you already have internally, just remove the sticky tape over the buttons, remove the tarnish, and then tape it back down.

Unfortunately you will have to remove the board,

I don't think IPA will work from the outside, but I guess you could try that first.
