Follow this guide to replace the 3.5mm headphone jack and game card reader board in a Nintendo Switch gaming console.

  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

    Mine was no longer than about 1mm.

    • 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.

    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.

    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.

    Jacob Klinkenberg - 답글

    +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 - 답글

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

    thawdon - 답글

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

    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.

    I cant get the card reader to stay connected to the motherboard when trying to reassemble it. Help needed.

    aNtHoNy R - 답글

    Yes. The reverse is not so simple- you can’t see what you’re doing when you attempt to reconnect and it only takes one small error to completely bend the contacts on the connector. Very delicate.

    if you very gently remove the foam pad sticker, you can at least see better how it lines up and can feel your way to a degree… then you can stick the pad back in. The pad seems pretty critical in keeping things in place once reassembled.

    holmzee - 답글

    Tried several times to replace this SD reader module. As mentioned above, the issue is aligning the connectors together. It appears the foam tape is being used to hold the connection in place. (assuming you can make a viable connection) I am rather surprised at this design. In my experience, mylar ribbon cables like this usually slide into a small PC mounted socket. It appears Nintendo went the cheap route here. This design is prone to failure since it does not enable a positive connection - at least from what I can see.

    Bill Little - 답글

    Directions were great and very helpful! Saved time and money doing myself.

    David Ross - 답글

    I found that tightening the screw for the sd reader all the way down caused the original sd reader to not seat correctly.

    Mike Snow - 답글

    I finished the repair and its not recognizing anything. Ive downloaded a couple more games to the hard drive while I was procrastinating the repair, could a desyncronization issue be causing this?

    David Huser - 답글

    I have the new reader plugged in but my nintendo switch wont turn on now.

    Deadlypizzaman - 답글

    I found it easier to connect it without the black foam pad so I could see and than add the foam pad over it. It was super easy and I an I 33 Mom doing this for my son. Was well worth the money for the kit saved us almost 100 bucks

    Katherine Harrison - 답글

    The Y screws are horrible. The bit in the took kit only managed to get two of them out. I have a Y0 bit that got the other two out. What a stupid design those are. Kit should include replacement screws and maybe a new foam pad for the SD Card Reader. New SD card module is tricky to get the connection.

    Garrett ewald - 답글

    Foam pad no longer sticky enough to hold down the connector. Is there any place to get a replacement sticky pad or a work around to keep the connection secure?

    Denise Adams - 답글

    Had my son follow this guide to fix his own switch where the ad card reader didn't work. And he did. Great instructions!!!! Thanks a million!

    @theomat Step 7 and 8 show the removal of the SD Card reader.

    Blake Klein - 답글

    Step 7 and 8 do not show that. It is completely missing. You show the card reader as being absent, but now how it came to BE absent. A lot of people will try to pull the shield out, presuming the reader is meant to come out with it. Why not update the guide?

  11. Remove the shield plate from the device. A thick pink thermal compound bridges the gap between the shield plate and the copper heat sink underneath. For best results, whenever the shield plate is removed, refer to our thermal paste guide to remove the old thermal compound and replace it with an appropriate, thick compound such as K5 Pro during reassembly.

    How do you know if the thermal paste needs to be replaced?

    Youji Hong - 답글

    Once you remove a heatsink you must always replace thermal paste even if you had just applied it ( or add a little more) . The reason is that once heat sink is fitted, paste splits around because of pressure and only needed amount will remain. If you remove the heatsink then some paste will move so when installed again there will be spots without paste. Hope this is clear enough. In any case cost of paste is very small compared to work time and value of your equipment…..

    MacTek -

    I’d recommend replacing the thermal compound to ensure that the cooling system works as intended.

    When your switch starts to lag and drop FPS, if you play breath of the wild and it starts to slow down in heavy areas like the forest where you get the master sword, can i use artic mx 4 insted of the pink compound?

    Diego Soto - 답글

    I’d like to know as well if a cpu thermal compound like arctic mx-4 can be used to replace the pink compound

    Adam Stillman - 답글

    No you shouldn't . It will spill around because it is not viscous enough and then there will be no heat transfer. As suggested by author K5 PRO is the most appropriate compound for such cases.

    MacTek -

    Arctic is generally only supposed to be used on bigger heat sinks like a personal computer. Its not nearly as thick or gummy compared to K5 PRO, and you should always use something that’s thicker for smaller project like a Switch/phone/tablet.

    Shawn Christensen -

    I really don’t understand in what areas I should be replacing the thermal paste.

    Do I leave the giant pink glob that’s present on the back plate or replace that as well?

    Or do I only apply it under the heat sink and on the motherboard?

After changing the board out, I don’t have touch on the screen, put the original PCB back in the console and i have touch again, so its not that I did any damage to the flexes or ZIF connector. Any one have any ideas?

Seems there are different kinds of card slots, European, American and Japanese, Installing for example an Eurean version into an American version wil result in a not working touchscreen , i think it`s a software issue as the cardslot had same parts, if anyone finds a workaround please let us know

Should you be applying a thermal paste when putting the heat sink back on?

andrewskm68 - 답글

I ordered the tools in this guide directly from this page, and somehow ended up with a 1mm flathead instead of a tri-point driver. Looking at my receipt, the flathead is indeed listed, but I didn’t observe that at the time of purchase — it all makes me a bit frustrated, as I have no idea how that happened. I’m attempting to order the correct driver now, but my son is going to be disheartened that he has to wait another week before he gets his Switch back.

Two things-

-it's one thing if the touch screen doesn't work, but if it's going crazy leave the ribbon in step 13 unplugged. That is the touch screen ribbon and unplugged will deactivate it completely.

- be careful not to strip a screw. It happened to me and it sucked to fix.
