Nintendo Wii U Repairability Score: 8 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair):
No components were held in by adhesive, including the display assembly in the GamePad controller.
Most components in both the console and GamePad controller can be replaced independently of their respective motherboards.
The battery in the GamePad is easily accessible and replaceable.
Once the Tri-wing screws have been removed from the top case, minimal prying effort is required to open.
Some of the screws on the GamePad controller are very recessed, requiring a longer Tri-wing bit, or in our case, a 4 mm nut driver attachment.
The inclusion of Tri-wing screws prevents easy access to internal components.
The GamePad controller's LCD and digitizer are fused together, increasing repair costs.
