    I've got a cracked hinge... Like this one...

    Nintendo of America says I can pay $55 for a replacement.

    Or I could buy a replacement shell and do it myself for 20-35 dollars...

    Are the ghost or shock shells good enough quality to go for them or should i just pay the 55?

    So assuming I buy this and the screwdriver I'm good?

    Also since this kit does not come with directions I should probably just follow another shell's guide or other dissassembly guide right?

    Cool...
    I'm glad to see like a real put-togeth product!

    I'm confident enough - I can take apart computers, psps, and I have opened up some DS's...

    So I should be good hopefully...


    From your experience with the product - Is it a valid replacement for a DS with a cracked hinge?

    Nintendo told me the same BS last year around the summer time, which pissed me off, so I had my wife call them again, and since my wife doesn't know much about this kind of stuff, she was able to get them to advance replace a refurbed ds lite to us, she just gave them a credit card number in case we did not send back the ds lite with the cracked hinge. It took about a week for us to get a replacement ds lite.
