I recently purchased Conker's Bad Fur Day second hand from facebook marketplace. The game cartridge is verified and legitimate however the game no longer saves any progress. After some searching, I learned I may need to replace the 16Kbit EEPROM. I have been holding out to purchase a decent copy of this game that was reasonably priced, and I really want to fix the issue, but I am not sure I am qualified to fix it alone. It's my favorite N64 game and I almost bought it from a local Game trader for $300 out of desperation/loss of patience before I found this one.

Am I able to send it anywhere for repairs?
Or can anyone point me in the right direction on where to get the EEPROM? I would also need resources to show me how to repair this.
I am really hoping to avoid opening my Episode 1 Racing game to use as a donor.

Any help is appreciated, thank you!
