    looks like you found your answer, and it actually helps me out! but the following may still be of interest for others...

    i found the same small part when i opened up my console. i had to go in there because the dvd drive stopped recognizing/playing discs. i could hear some part(s) floating around in there. sure enough, opened it up and out came that and a square nut that i later found out helps hold the lithium battery in place. i'm wondering if the two are linked? after putting the nut back in place, my battery still doesn't quite stay put -- it wants to pop up out of the console. maybe that plastic piece is something that would normally clip something into place? if you're comparing against another console, trying searching for differences in the area of the battery.

    sorry i don't have a definite answer.

    Hi guys my brothers wii has been acting up something fierce I think the bluetooth module may be broken or loose.

    The problem is that NO controller can stay synced to his console for more than 10 seconds or so. Im not a novice and do that alot and NOTHING seems to work so its gotta be something inside with console that is shot. I am presuming the bluetooth module b/c thats what the wiimotes use to connect and its a connection error.

    can anyone provide me with any insight into my problem? does it sound like the bluetooth thing is broken? any ideas of where to get em, cause I havent seen them anywhere except ebay and I refuse to use them anymore.

    thanks and any help would be appreciated

    Why don't you try a GC controller first...

    Ive tried that, was my first idea actually.

    But one cant use a GC Pad to navigate the wii menu.

    I have a GC Pad... but the wiimote loses sync within seconds of the console powering on... the wiimote usually has lost connectivity before I can click the wiiflow channel on wii menu screen, even if I click it fast enough... it loses connectivity by the time wiiflow loads, and you cant reconnect wiimotes in wiiflow or config usb loader.... I unfornately think the GC pad is a dead end...

    I am trying to decide if I should attempt to replace just the laser on my Wii or if I should replace the whole drive.

    Any advice?
