Introduzione

Follow this guide to remove the rear panel from a Nintendo Switch.

A single screw is hidden underneath the kickstand.

  1. Remove the four 6.3 mm Tri-point Y00 screws from the rear panel.
    • Remove the four 6.3 mm Tri-point Y00 screws from the rear panel.

    Please be careful with these screws. Your bit will go through them like butter and strip them if you're not careful. Speaking from experience.

    So should I use glasses screws

    what happens if you do strip a screw?

    Stephanie C Cusimano - Replica

    I used a Y0 bit instead and it worked better for me not to strip the screws

    Alexander Watson - Replica

    Any suggestions of what you can do if you do strip the screw

  2. Remove the single 6.1 mm Phillips #000 screw from underneath the kickstand.
    • Remove the single 6.1 mm Phillips #000 screw from underneath the kickstand.

    Mine was no longer than about 1mm.

    Agree. This was a very short screw.

  3. Remove the two 2.7 mm Phillips #000 screws from the bottom of the device.
    • Remove the two 2.7 mm Phillips #000 screws from the bottom of the device.

    These screws wouldn’t go back in for me for some reason. I was definitely using the right screws as I set them aside step by step as usual. I’m not sure what the problem could have been, I just reassembled without the screws.

  4. Remove the single 2.7 mm Phillips #000 screw from the top of the device.
    • Remove the single 2.7 mm Phillips #000 screw from the top of the device.

    This one didn’t want to come out on its own, and only came loose when I completed the rest of the steps to remove the rear panel, as I pulled the panel off.

  5. Remove the single 3.8 mm Phillips #000 screw from the right Joy-Con rail. Remove the single 3.8 mm Phillips #000 screw from the left Joy-Con rail.
    • Remove the single 3.8 mm Phillips #000 screw from the right Joy-Con rail.

    • Remove the single 3.8 mm Phillips #000 screw from the left Joy-Con rail.

    Please do not use a JIS #0 bit on this kit. I ended up stripping the screw on my switch and now I won't be able to get inside. You are much more likely to remove this screw with a JIS #000 bit, like literally every other screw on this machine. Why I thought I should throughly read and follow the instructions is beyond me, because I guess this ifixit guy decided it would be a great meme to get people to ruin their switches.

    +1, JIS #0 seems way too large; I used a #00 and that worked. I agree that #000 might have worked even better, but I saw this comment too late.

    Nikolai Knopp -

    Mine was #000 too. #0 was definitely too large. Also there are signs of blue threadlock.

    Nani - Replica

    tried using #000 and #00 but the screw wont turn, any ideas why

    Ive been trying to unscrew with the correct 000 bit for like 5 minutes and it wont unscrew :/ please help asap

    this screw stripped in like two seconds using the screwdriver included with ifixit’s kit!

    Connor Martini - Replica

    One screw didn’t come off and now it is stripped…. I’m trapped in this step, desperate and questioning all my life choices…….

    RIP crew, RIP repair

    Well this sucks, I can’t get these %#*@ joy con screws out, why did I spend all this money, its works on every other screw on the joy con rails but its like these middle screws aren’t cut deep enough for anything to grab onto it.

    I got them out with a #000 but it took an obscene amount of pressure put down on the screw. Needless to say I’m not putting them back in.

  6. Pull the rear panel up and off of the device. Pull the rear panel up and off of the device. Pull the rear panel up and off of the device.
    • Pull the rear panel up and off of the device.

    You appear to be missing a step. The SD card reader needs to be removed between steps 6 and 7.

    Achtet darauf die Backplate nicht zu kippen, wie es die Bilder vermuten lassen. Ich habe beim nach Hinten klappen ein Plastikgewinde an der Backplate abgebrochen. Aufpassen.

    I think the picture is a bit misleading. I tiltet the plate while I was removing it what resulted in an broken off screwmount.

Conclusione

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Excellent and concise guide.

The new panel doesn’t come with the sticky grille pieces x 2 on the bottom. Is it supposed to be a straight transfer between the old and the new?

Sal jUNK - Replica

Just did this replacement and there are a few things to keep in mind that this review does not mention. There are x2 square foam pieces that can be transferred to the new panel located at the bottom backside of the old. Also, the game cartridge shield hardware and the kickstand holder hardware have to be taken off the back of the old panel and transferred to the new panel. The kickstand has 2 Phillips #000 screws and the game cartridge shield has 1 Phillips #000 screw

Ryan Talbert - Replica

How do you transfer the foam pieces? Use some heat to loosen their adhesive and then remove them and transfer over the new backplate?

John - Replica

Is the casing the same between the HAC model and the HAD model? This guide doesn’t specify

Julian Webb - Replica

I am using iFixit Pro tool kit. What to do if one of the 000 screw’s cap appears to be stripped off? How to extract it if perchance?
