I cracked the wii remote front infrared panel while bowling, now it doesn't point. Can this be fixed? All other functions are still working.

You can try just unscrewing the case and removing the front cover and see if that helps. The front cover is just a filter that only passes infrared light (and keeps dust out). But if you damaged the sensor inside, then you'll need a new Wii remote. To unscrew the case, I believe you need a tri-wing screwdriver, which you can get at Ebay. If the sensor is damaged, you can sell the remote to a hacker who only needs it for the accelerometer.
