    So since my shoulder button wasn't working anymore, even with blowing, I ordered a new one, together with a new screen and a shell replacement.
    So my only question is: How do you replace a shoulder button? (R-Button in my case)
    Thanks in advance

    I've been using this one 2 times and well... my DS is still working perfectly...
    So I hope it helps. But be warned: Replacing the shoulderbuttons is a pain in the arse... xD
    The springs always jump off and you can start over again... You have to be really careful with them... ^^ Aaaand patient...

    I'm sending my DS to Nintendo tomorrow, because I've been noticing my left shoulder button only working about 60% of the time. There will be some nights I'll tap it six times, and it won't be till the seventh I receive a response. Then the next day it will work just fine, but since my warranty will be up in a few months I figured I might as well just have them take a look at it.
