    • Remove the two 7.1mm Phillips #00 screws.

    Both screws are not “7.1mm” in length, only the one to the right is (center of the console’s side). The left one (towards the front of the console) is 5.1mm.

    There’s a third screw to remove bottom-left corner of this picture. On step 9 it’s already been removed, and you need it to be removed in order to remove the metal casing in step 13.

    The front portion of the side of the cover with the vents was kind of stuck on mine. There’s a little rubber piece in there that was the cause of this. But that same rubber piece also makes up the little handle-shaped nub that sticks out of the side there. (There’s also one at the back of the same side, but that one didn’t stick for me.) Lifting also using the little handle made it easy to remove the cover.

  7. Rotate the device so that the front plate is facing you. On each side of the console, remove the 3.5mm Phillips #0 screw connecting the DVD drive to the faceplate.

    My screw won't come out, and I feel as if my screw was screwed in too tight when they made the wii u, or the 3.5 #0 is too big. I have tried other screws and I think the screw might be done for because the metal is coming off of the top and deforming the shape. I am very lost and if anyone could help me, that would be amazing.

    Those #0 screws might be tight and they’re easy to strip. Put some force on the screwdriver to make sure you start unscrewing them and not stripping them.

    One of the screws started to deform instead of unscrewing. I used a bigger Philips screwdriver (size 1), added a rubberband between it and the screw and used more force to avoid stripping it more and make sure it would start unscrewing. It worked hopefully ! But I wasn’t sure it would.

    • Lift up on the blue tab to release the ribbon cable.

    There is a step to do before to "lift up on the blue tab in order to release the ribbon cable". We must lift up the connector who maintain the ribbon cable. By default, his position his locked and in order to unlock it, must put it in his top position.

Great guide. I was able to fix the front USB door on my Wii u! Thanks guys!

Matt Jones - Ответить

My ribbon seems to work but the little connection it plugs into on the circuit board in the console broke off. Not just the black clip but the whole little circuit. Seems like a clean break. Can I solder it back on? If I push it back on and hold the ribbon in the red light comes on and blinks. Occasionally I can get the white light to come on for like a second but I never hear fans spinning/more of the unit coming to life before it shuts itself off.

Thoughts on how to fix it?
