So what happens if you drop your controller down the stairs, or it slides off the catwalk on to the downstairs tile, or you just epic rage quit? Your controller may break in several different ways. Mine had the bar that turns the trigger button snap in half, so i decided to show you how to fix it if it happens to you. CAUTION, this will void your waranty by opening your controller, its not my fault if you break anything.

WHAT YOU NEED

  1. A T8 security screwdriver found here
  2. Super Glue found in almost any store ex Walmart
  3. Patience

How To Do It

First take out the battery pack and then start taking out all the visible screws with the screwdriver you bought.
As you can see in the picture below, circled is each screw.

As you can see this is why you need the T8 Security screwdriver for the tiny pin in the middle of the screw.

Once all the screws are removed you will need to "pop" open the controller shell. you can do this by placing your fingernails in the seam on the side of the controller and lightly pulling it apart. See pictures below.

Once your controller is open you will be able to locate the broken part. For me it was the bar that turns the trigger button, I had already fixed this it was to hard to take pictures while super gluing it.

This video will show you more in depth than the pictures how to do this.



PUTTING IT BACK TOGETHER

First you want to insert the triggers into the shell. Shown below

Be sure to slide the battery springs back into the controller very impertant

Once you have the controller shell placed together replace the screws in the proper locations and enjoy your repaired controller, and take pride in yourself that you repaired it yourself.

Finished.
