    Last time I opened my wii i used this set:

    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2905

    but the tips have worn out already. The screwdrivers dont seem to say what size they are, although I believe I need a triwing size 1. All the other sets on DX seem t have triwings bigger than this, and ive no idea what size philips driver I need.

    Any tips?

    I guess if you worned them out , your screwed (joke hehe)
    Triwing screws are incredibly annoying, I didn't realize I needed a triwing screwdriver, so now have to wait till it arrives then I can chip mine.

    That's the set I have and for the price, I'm not sure you can beat it. [​IMG] Even if you have to buy them a 3rd time, for the whole set it's cheaper then buying the more expensive ones. Unless you plan on opening your Wii a ton of other times, just buy the same set again.

    I have to agree with the poster above. I've got 2 sets of these. For the price, you'd expect them to be throwaway practically.

    LOL do what i did when i modded my wii... i used a powerdrill and i just drilled off the screws till they fell off and then went to the local hardware store and found the same size screws for like 5 cents... so then next time i need to open it, its easier...

    I don;t recommend this. For $1.50 you can do it the right way and not worry about it.

    I got mine from Partneringco when I needed a new DS shell and touchscreen. Works great, shows no sign of wear and comes with a small + shape screwdriver for internal screws as well. I've opened some GC controllers with this as well with no problems.
