Looking for Nintendo DS Lite Shoulder Button Springs

Post by sygyzy » Tue Nov 06, 2018 12:26 pm

Hi, this is a really specific request but I need to find a spring for the Left Shoulder button in a Nintendo DS Lite. I have bought spring/screw replacement kits on eBay but they send two identical springs. The thing is, this won't work because the springs need to be wound in a certain way for them to install properly.

In the first photo, you can see a properly installed spring. This is the Right shoulder button. Notice how the arm that fits in the slot, comes out of the bottom of the coil.

In the second photo, you can see the wrong spring installed. It comes out of the top of the coil which makes it want to slip out of the notch.

No, you cannot flip the spring around or rotate it.
