Is there a guide for replacing the bottom touch screen for the new xl?

I recently have had a line of LEDs go out on the bottom screen. I can find the part to replace it, but the only tutorials are for the old 3ds xl, which has a different layout.

Is this a good question?

Hi bpmurphy18,

I did some further research and - indeed - it is difficult to find a repair manual for the lower LCD/digitizer of the latest model.

My recommendation would be to use some instructions from the previous model. I am not sure how different the latest model is compared to the previous one. But I would give it a shot. You can always "cross reference" your steps with the teardown of the latest model provided here on ifixit.com.

Here is a video how to get to the lower screen of the previous model.

Have you tried the teardown of the new 3DS provided by ifixtit.com here?

I did but i doesn't exactly have a guide on which parts need to me removed and tabs need pulled before removing each part. I'd feel kind of uncomfortable doing that without a comprehensive guide.
