Want to try to repair the R button yourself? Of course, it will void the warranty, but you don't have one anymore.

There's not a huge risk in destroying the 3DS, but you'll save a lot of money doing this. I've seen the R button replacement part go for a little over $10 on eBay.

If so, I have a link to a helpful guide.

Well, there's already a link to a video showing how to replace the shoulder buttons, thanks zealousclouds, BTW. But any help would be really nice.

Whoops, heh heh. Didn't see the link.

Here's an eBay page with a good amount of sales:

And, just for the record, here's the R button guide, in case youtube doesn't work:
