So I replaced the case on my old DS. It's working fine and everything but I'm stumped on one part - There was a bolt/screw of some kind running partway through the hinge from the left/right on the old shell.
The new shell didn't come with one so... it's... all floppy? o_O
Am I supposed to take the bolts somehow from my old case?
How would I do that? Also, how would I put it into the new shell/case since the place I'd need to insert it is covered up by an overlap from the top screens shell?

There out it is nothing like a broken hinge only repair solution, the only way to get it repaired is to buy a new replacement shell and replace the broken parts or the whole shell, but some cheap shells wont last and will broke again so read reviews. And if you are not too skilled be careful when replacing or you can get your DS more damaged.
The best is to find a good case broken DS, like water damage etc. to get only the original plastic parts. I should love to have to buy only the broken parts needed but you have to buy the whole thing.
yes the shell can be replaced, you can either check ebay or google nintendo ds lite shell housing, i have seen them, doing this yourself is no easy task, there is a repair service on ebay under repair service fix nintendo ds lite
