    “DON’T” forget to put your screws separately on a mag mat (Or sticky tape) so to 1) Not loose them & 2) Remember where they go as they may be of differing sizes. (Refer time the pictures also helps, but you can take a pic on your camera as you go to remind you also.

    J’ai récemment fait cette réparation et le boîtier avant ne voulait pas venir à condition d’enlever les deux vis sur le boîtier arrière au niveau du joystick et de la croix directionnelle. Il manque donc selon moi une partie mais je peux me tromper !
