    So I've read the assembly guide of the DS Lite, and it says I need this:

    - #00 philips screwdriver
    - small regular screwdriver (jewelers size)
    - tri-wing screwdriver
    - jewelers sized needle-nosed pliers

    Where can I buy these things online?

    You could try www.dealextreme.com, but be prepared for long waits on shipping times.

    You only really need a small Philips screwdriver and a Tri-wing screwdriver. The flathead/pliers are only for getting off the rubber tabs covering the screws, which could be done using a knife or similar.

    That's all you need... for $1.49, though be prepared for over a week shipping [​IMG]

    The triwing is an absolute, without it you have nothing.

    You also want a decent Youtube video showing you someone actually doing it (there are a few).

    If a week's wait is actually something that will vex you, I would also include a shit load of patience.

    Anyone that moans about a week's shipping likely shouldn't even try to disassemble their DS, as they don't have the temperment to do it right.
