Replace the trigger buttons on your Nintendo DS Lite and get back in the game!

  1. Unscrew the Phillips screw securing the battery cover to the lower case. The screw remains captive to the battery cover.
    • Unscrew the Phillips screw securing the battery cover to the lower case.

    • The screw remains captive to the battery cover.

    • Pry the battery cover upward with a spudger or fingernail, and lift out of the lower case.

    A Phillips #000 (PH000) seems to give a more secure fit (no slipping) than the stated Phillips #00.

    This will be good for mods

    • Three 5.5 mm silver Tri-Wing screws

    Not mentioned is to remove the jumper/connector below the word "SLOT-2". Case WILL NOT separate otherwise.

  5. Insert the edge of a spudger in between the lower and upper case near the top right corner of the DS Lite. Carefully run the spudger along the right edge of the DS Lite, creating an opening in the process. Continue running the spudger along the backside of the DS Lite until the majority of the lower case has been separated from the upper case.

    Don’t forget to remove the GBA cartridge placeholder before removing the backside

  6. Lift the lower case away from the rest of the DS Lite.
    • Lift the lower case away from the rest of the DS Lite.

    • Pull carefully. Some units are sealed with adhesive, and pulling too hard can damage the power switch.

    When you reassemble, make sure that you have the volume and power buttons in place, and make sure they are in the right position to line up with the switches on the motherboard. If they are not aligned, you risk snapping off the tiny switches on the motherboard (in which case, you are in for some soldering work).

    Eric - Contestar

    I should have read the comments first - broke off the power switch because I didn't know about aligning it. No way I can do soldering, guess it's for the dustbin :-(

    Emma -

    Whoops, remembered the power button but forgot the volume slider.

    I'll do it later.

    There is no way that the fact you have to line up the volume and power switch toggles upon reassembly is not in this guide. I just carefully followed this guide to replace the shoulder buttons but ruined my DS lite because I didn’t read these (practically hidden comments due to the design of the website) comments and broke the power switch. Thankfully there are 150 million DS I can buy second hand but “repeat the steps backwards” wasn’t sufficient in this repair. And that’s what this website is for.

  7. Lift both trigger buttons out of the DS Lite. The trigger buttons are held in very loosely by small metal pegs and springs.  Don't lose track of these pieces.
    • Lift both trigger buttons out of the DS Lite.

    • The trigger buttons are held in very loosely by small metal pegs and springs. Don't lose track of these pieces.

    • The second picture shows the correct configuration of the trigger assembly for reassembly purposes.

    Anything after step 7 is unnecessary if having to replace the left or right trigger button(s).

    Nate River - Contestar

    The second picture does not show the correct configuration of the button spring. It should be flipped. Look at the trigger on the left of the larger image; that is the correct configuration.
