If your GameBoy Advance SP AGS-100 or AGS-101 has a deteriorating shell, or if you’re looking to customize it, use this guide to replace the shell.

Before using this guide, plug in your console and charge it for a few minutes. If the battery is too old, it may start expanding and could potentially explode. If it starts to swell, you’ll have to order a replacement battery - which you can find below:

Before beginning the replacement process, power off your console and unplug it from the outlet if it is plugged in.

  1. Unscrew the screw on the battery compartment with a Phillips #00 screwdriver. Open the battery compartment and remove the battery.
    • Unscrew the screw on the battery compartment with a Phillips #00 screwdriver.

    • Open the battery compartment and remove the battery.

    • Remove the four 6.45 mm Tri-point Y00 screws from the corners of the device.

    • Remove the two 4.6 mm Tri-point Y00 screws from inside the battery compartment and game cartridge comparments.

  2. Lift off the bottom cover to expose the motherboard. If you need to, use isopropyl alcohol to clean the power and volume sliders. Remove the three 4mm Phillips #00 screws from the motherboard.

    • Remove the three 4mm Phillips #00 screws from the motherboard.

    • Gently lift up the motherboard and remove the ribbon cable by gently pulling the two clips on the side up and towards the cable.

    • Remove the small Phillips #00 screw hidden underneath the ribbon cable. It holds the hinge cover of the top screen together.

  3. Open the GBA SP screen and use the pointed end of a spudger to remove the rubber pads around the screen bezel. Remove the five Tri-point Y00 screws hidden beneath the rubber pads.

    • Remove the bezel from the screen with a spudger.

    • Be careful not to pull on the ribbon cable as the bezel comes off.

  4. Remove the hinges from the original shell. This is the most difficult step, as it requires a lot of force to remove the hinges. Apply pressure with the pointed end of a spudger from the inside, pushing out with plenty of force. The hinges will likely fly out of the shell a few feet; this is normal.

    • Once the hinges are removed, remove the caps on the end of each hinge.

    • Be careful with the spudger. Pushing out the hinges requires a massive amount of force, and you might injure your hand on accident if you do not take extra caution.

  5. Take out your replacement shell. Push the hinges from the old case into the slot of the new case about halfway while the case is closed.
    • Take out your replacement shell.

    • Push the hinges from the old case into the slot of the new case about halfway while the case is closed.

    • Then open the shell and push the hinges the rest of the way in.

  6. Place your screen into the new shell and affix the bezel into position; the ribbon cable should slide through the gap like before. The case should click into place so that it stays together even without screws. There also may be a small gap between the top and bottom case, as this common on third party cases. Reinstall the five Tri-point Y00 screws around the screen.

    • Reinstall the speaker, buttons, and silicone pads into the bottom case.

  7. Reinsert the ribbon cable into the motherboard and lock it into place. Guide the motherboard into the new case and screw it down with the three 4mm Phillips #00 screws. Install the square, threaded washer on the back of the shell. This is where the battery compartment's screw gets held, so it is important!

  8. Make sure the volume and power sliders are in place before putting the back cover on. Put the back cover on and push the two parts together. Screw the shell together with the four 6.45 mm Tri-point Y00 and two 4.6 mm Tri-point Y00 screws, then reinstall the battery.

  9. Reinstall the rubber pads around the screen bezel—they stop the shell from rubbing together on the inside. Find the "Nintendo" logo replacement sticker and put it into place.
