Inleiding

Over time, Switch models may malfunction. One part that may stop functioning correctly is the SD card reader. The Switch system is notorious for its small internal storage space, so it might be impossible for owners to download additional game titles without an SD card.

A broken SD card reader or connector socket can prevent the user from properly using an SD card altogether. For this project, experience with applying flux is strongly recommended. Additionally, he or she should have prior knowledge of how to use a heat gun.
