    Hi guys,

    So for a while i've been playing pikmin 3 with the stylus mode and I love the controlling method. The thing however is that you have to put a lot of pressure on the gamepad with this controller method. It resulted in my gamepad creaking a lot on the bottom left edge.

    My question is, is this fixable by deassembling it and like... adjusting something? I couldnt find anything on a fix for this so i'm assuming no but I hope maybe someone at gbatemp knows more.

    If not than i'll probably just either send it to repairs or replace it with a new wii u which im planning to get anyway. It sucks that ill have to give someone a creaking gamepad as a result so it'd be great to be able to fix it.
