How to dislodge hinge?
I have to replace the top lcd of a 3DS XL (also known as 3DS LL) and have problems dislodging the hinge. I've done may 3DS's and Dsi's but this one seems to be a bit different. Normally, there is a plastic piece that needs to be removed so the metal hinge can be pushed to the inside of the console, however, the 3DS XL does not seem to have this plastic piece. It does however have the metal hinge, so it has to be moved somehow, only I can't find out how. I tried pulking at the plastic but all I did is chip of pieces of plastic. Unfortunately, the information available for this Nintendo is very limited. Only thing I could find is a tear down that was already linked in an earlier question, but in this specific tear down, the top is not dislodged from the bottom part, rendering it useless for replacing the top lcd. So if anybody has done this repair succesfully or knows how to do it, any help is much appreciated!
