    Took them out just fine, I'm doing a full shell swap.

    Now I'm having trouble feeding the new 3DS XL's top screen, camera, and volume/3D slider through the 3 freaking millimeter opening.

    Any tips, an order to do it in, anything?

    I had to do this with an older 3ds but ended up ripping them. So your best choice atm would to take it to a repair shop and ask them to do it.

    ...anyway, I eventually got it through.

    Just one more thing, though. I can't get the hinge to click.

    Does anyone who has repaired this know if the hinge part goes in first, or the metal cable coil?
