My R Button is stuck down, how do I fix it?

The button is stuck in the "pressed" position. To get my 3DS to respond as if it weren't being press, I have to pull the edge of the button up. When it goes back down, I do not hear the clicking sound the other 3 shoulder buttons make when they're pressed. The button is stuck down on the right, away from the center of the system. I've uploaded some images as well.

The first and 3rd images are of my L button, which isn't broken. They're there for quick reference.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Mine won't stop clicking, most of the games are playable, but one is not. Think the issue is the zr key.

After fixing my issue, I must warn that if you intend on opening up the inner casing to reconfigure the button, the shoulder buttons are an absolute PAIN to put back in place, just beware. small springs and nuts are easy to lose.

I had this problem when I dropped my 3ds. what I did was (carefully) disassemble the button itself and put a very very very small piece of thin cardbordin between the black mechanical part of the button and the plastic that presses against it. Fixed it completely. I would have taken pictures or video, but all pieces are extremely small and very difficult to deal with. I don't blame ifixit for not making a guide on the buttons lol.
