Follow this guide to replace the micro SD card board in a Nintendo Switch gaming console.

WARNING: the battery won’t be disconnected for this repair so be cautious when using metal tools around the motherboard.

  1. 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.

    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.

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

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

  9. Gently lift the micro SD card board straight up, away from the Switch to disconnect and remove it. During reassembly, line up the micro SD card board and lightly press on the foam pad until the press connector snaps into place to reconnect it.

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

    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.

    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.

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

My SD reader never worked.

Used this guide to find that it was never seated correctly. Reseated and now works perfectly. THANK YOU!

doctor_g7 - 답글

Easy guide, fixed my problem. Changed the SD card reader cause I was abusing of it by putting SD in and out constantly.

Nicola Bonardi - 답글

Great guide! My 11-year-old son was able to fix his Switch himself with no difficulty.

Matt - 답글

Some one can help me, when I tried to put the connector again I damage the fpc connector of the motherboard so I try to find out again can any one know the kind of model of this connector I really appreciate the help

Best regards

Worked perfectly! The only issue I had was the Tripoint 000 bit that I ordered from here didn’t fit any screwdriver that I owned. So I used a vice grip to hold the bit.

Gracias, tenía el boot.bat error y esto me ayudó

Thanks i had boot.bat error and this help me

I have to give a BIG thanks to this thread! Nintendo offered to fix it for me with a 4 week wait, I didn’t want to give up my switch. So I bought all the tools and SD card reader suggested on this thread! Fixing it was super easy, mind u, I don’t have a steady hand so it took longer than the estimated time! But my switch now reads SD cards, I had already bought a 64 gig one, but since mine was faulty it wouldn’t read.

now I have all my games back, and didn’t have to send my switch anywhere! Thank u so much for having this post! I never would’ve thought to fix it myself.

Is it just me or does the parts listed under ‘Buy these parts’ link not include the needed tri-wing screwdriver?
