Do you have any recommended sites to were I can get the part from? I’m not that trustful for eBay when it comes to buying something on there.

Amazon, has most of the parts if you want to shop around. Deal4GO (Amazon Seller) has almost all of the Switch Parts if you don’t want to get them from iFixit’s website.

Would you happen to know how to take out the screws if they’ve been stripped due to corrosion/rust? The back and site plate screws seem to have corroded and started to strip when I tried to unscrew them.

I am running into same problem now. 3 out of 4 back screws are striped
