    Where does a small square washer go inside the Wii?

    I was reassembling my Wii after a disc drive repair job, when I noticed that the faceplate would not close, and heard a rattling noise when I tilted the system. When I opened the Wii back up a small, square washer exactly 1/2 cm in diameter fell out that I have never seen before. It fell out of the back of the Wii, but was rolling around freely inside the console before, so I have no idea what area it came from.

    I don't want to continue with this job until I know where the washer should go back in. It seems to be preventing the faceplate from going back on, and it may cause other problems if I leave it out. Anyone able to help?

    I should figure the senior moderators at this site would have a bit more tact than to troll people asking serious technical questions with unfunny eight-year-old memes. They're certainly setting a terrible example for the rest of the forum.

    Well, I feel my response was warranted, given the ungrateful undertone of the above
    quoted post of yours. Nightstah,(A valued staff member, with nearly 15,000 posts, and
    who has been thanked over 3,000 times for helping people)has taken the time(FREE OF CHARGE)
    to source a very pertinent guide, and linked you to it, for your convenience, only to receive a
    "No, it doesn't help" statement.

    Not a "thanks for your response, but that doesn't quite help me". Or, "I read the linked guide, but I'm
    still unsure it relates to my problem". In fact, your response was so non specific, I doubt you even took
    the time to read the guide that Nightstah linked you.

    I think leaving this thread open would be setting a terrible example for the rest of the forum.
    When someone links you to a guide with that much info, at least act like you are grateful.
    If after that you, you act like an ungrateful brat. Be prepared for some sarcasm.
