Introdução

This guide shows how to replace broken trigger buttons on a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Broken triggers limit an optimum gaming experience with the Nintendo Switch console. Replacing a broken trigger on your controller will aid you in using your controller to its full extent. This guide requires a nearly full disassembly of the controller. Therefore, exercise caution during disassembly to ensure that you do not damage the circuitry or the ribbon connectors on the inside of the controller.

  1. Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Trigger Button  Replacement, Remove the screws: passo 1, imagem 1 %32
    • Flip the controller over so the model stickers face the ceiling.

    • Use a JIS 00 driver or an official iFixit PH 00 driver to remove the two black flathead 8.4 mm-long screws that secure the handles, located at the ends of the handles.

    Be carefull, these screws are super easy to strip even with the right tools.

    I tried editing these instructions after I had trouble with stripping screws, but it doesn't seem to take. The issue is that these are JIS and not Phillips screws. They are VERY similar looking but a Phillips head screwdriver will strip the screws.

    the 2 screws up at the top are unreachable with the standard fixit kit just a heads up

    Seconded. the screws are located too deep below the plastic slot, and the bit holding bulge is too wide for the small aperture (similarly with the flexible extension). the bit length is too shallow to reach.

    An alternative driver with a much narrower & longer shaft is required, which will likely not come with interchangeable bits.

    I would say it is possible to reach the top left screw, just not the top right - there is a gap in the top left that allows you to slightly bend the standard driver outward to turn it while still making adequate contact.

    An update: I was actually able to remove the top right one in a really hacky way - inserting the Phillips #0 bit into the #4 hex bit, and then using that in the standard driver. This added just enough length to successfully reach and make full contact with the screw!

    El_Mechacontext -

    Using the #4 hex bit as an extension was the exact "hack" I needed to get rid of the drift finally. Thank you. You're a lifesaver.

    Das #4 Hex Bit als Verlängerung für das Kreuzschlitz Bit zu nutzen ist zwar etwas eng, aber es erspart einem wirklich einen zusätzlichen Schraubendreher.

    • Delicately take off the plastic cover from the controller.

    • Do not completely remove the front cover just yet, as it is still attached to the motherboard via a white ribbon cable.

    Didn't realize there is adhesive holding the front cover onto the unit. It's located inside of the handles. Just a bit of force there helped, just be careful of the cable.

This guide does show how to remove the trigger/bumper casing and board from the controller but does not show how to remove the triggers/bumpers from the casing they are in.

Boushi Adams - Responder

Yeah, this is a pretty big point to be missing, especially with the Flex Cable for the shoulder button inputs being right beside the post you need to pull out to remove the ZL and ZR buttons. Guidance on how to remove the post safely without damaging the cable would be great.

Alex Crocker -

Used the guide to repair a shattered right shoulder button successfully. Thanks!
