Wii Disc Drive Broken Gear - Possible to Fix?

Block Image

I have a wii disc drive that will accept discs, but will not eject them. Upon tear down the disc drive makes some noises presumably coming from this one gear i noticed. On closer inspection it seems this one plastic gear is slightly cracked? Is there anyway to repair this or, is buying a new disc drive my best bet? Attached is pictures.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Macy!

It’s a unlucky part which is broken. It will be difficult to find the part you need to replace. So those are the options:

  1. You can buy a new working drive and replace it (PCB does not need to be swapped for Wii). And strip the broken drive for parts (laser, rotor, worm motor and more..)
  2. You can buy a broken drive and take the good parts out (including the gear you need) and put it in your old drive.

I don’t think you will find the part that easy. You can always try to search for it (I did too now, but didn’t find the part you need).
