    Alright so the grey smoooth thing over my circle pad came out randomly. Today I noticed that I could actually rotate it completely without coming back in place (which wasn't possible back then as after rotating it a few degrees, it went back). My guess is that it unglued or something.
    I tried to just put it back but whenever I do, theres a side of the pad that can easily come out, no matter how I put it.

    So my question is, what is the most efficient and cautious way to glue it back? Do I just superglue it or some shit. If so, should I just superglue the little buttons in the middle?

    Nintendo will charge you 90$ to put it back on your best to just get a n3ds. i tried super gluing mine and it ended up feeling really messed up plus its a pain you need to be quick about getting it back on and all the folds around the pad

    Why buy a whole new system just because of the circle pad being messed up? He could buy a replacement circle pad and just install that.

    he would still have to glue it on or take the system apart and 90$ is not worth spending just to have a piece of rubber put back on.

    Rock on without it.
    Its a common problem.
    You can try to glue it back on but it wont last long.

    I can put it back easily, it just falls off quickly. I'll try superglue tomorrow.

    Sugru? It's a silicone glue/clay. You can make a homemade version with 100% silicone caulking and cornstarch. I just used it the other day to fix some free weights I had - the rubber parts had come off...
