So I'm trying to send my 3ds in for repairs, and in the instructions it says to remove all accessories, including screen protectors. So, with great difficulty, I removed the screen protector from the top screen, attempting the tape and card methods. The card method worked. So now I'm faced with the problem of the bottom screen protector, and I don't believe I am capable of prying it off with a card. I've attempted the tape method several times and to my disappointment, it was incapable of even the slightest pull. Do you think Ninty would mind if I sent it in with a note stating that I had trouble removing it, or do you have a reasonable solution? I believe the brand of screen protector is hori, if that at all helps. Thank you for your time.

Ive tried twice with 2 different products to get a screen protector on the bottom without bubbles and just not manage it. So now it's unprotected forever I guess.

I personally don't think they would mind, but of course there has to be a possibility they could send it back depending on how strict the receiver is.

I should assume they wouldn't go that far, hopefully anyway. :(
Also, time is of the essence, as I'm sending it out tomorrow regardless.

I got the protector off my bottom screen with a toothpick before. I very carefully managed to get just enough of a corner up to get the whole thing off.

How does one go about that carefully? I hadn't considered using a toothpick to pry up a corner, but I applied it so well originally that I don't believe there is enough space to do so. Is it really just as simple as that though?

Yeah, I didn't have much room to work with either, but I managed to get enough leverage against the protector. I wouldn't say it was easy, though. I did have to work with it a bit, and I was also being very cautious not to mess up my screen.
