Wii U Gamepad Screen Repair?

I love playing on my Wii u. Titles like Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon help me feel awesome. But unfortunately, my Wii u gamepad screen broke. I've looked everywhere for a guide to do it because it cost $100 to get it done by Nintendo. Can someone please give me a guide or possibly ask IFixIt to create a guide to overcome this problem?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

When you say the screen is broken, what's the situation exactly?

Is it cracked? Does the screen display? Is it completely black? Has it bled?

The screen is not cracked but the screen is damaged from within, so there is just black with a little bit of color lines.

Only scratches on the screen

It's simple really, but it just takes a while to do this.

Two solutions:

1. You can go on amazon and search up "wii u lcd screen" and find the one by Nintendo. Under it is tools that are INTENDED for the repair.

"Warning: You NEED to buy the tri-wing screwdriver, and if you don't have a BIG size array of phillips head screwdrivers, buy the one there.."

2. Just go to your local Target or Nintendo store, and buy a new GamePad.

Both solutions work. 1st one takes alot of time an risk, 2nd one is easy, yet pricey.

(And I'm not talking about gas prices..)
