Hi Natalie you have come to the right place I actually have the same exact issue with the casing but not with the lcd screen. That being said the repairs are going to be tied in your going to be following the same steps to replace the casing mostly but I will give you the video and you can find the parts and tools your going to need to on the lcd screen replacement guide here Nintendo 3DS XL Upper LCD Display Replacement now I actually recommend you get the phillips #00 instead of the triple so you don't strip out screws. The casing is actually going to require pliers to as but that all though for the added tools. The other thing I recommend is the heavy duty spudger to but it's optional. Now with all that said here is the video on how to replace the full casing. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dVn_m_OIHU... I only found used casings but they are high quality nothing is wrong with them and here are the casings you can choose from even though the red casing is the only one in stock right now it will still workNintendo 3DS XL Mid-Frame and Digitizer Assembly I do recommend wearing disposable gloves so you don't get the natural oil from our fingers on the motherboard because it can damage it.
