    tried to unscrew the 10 Tri-Wing size Y1 screw with my iFixIt toolkit

    unfortunately the tool is too “fat” and short, it cannot reach 4 screws on the corners of the gamepad.

    having the iFixIt toolkit and needing to purchase an additional slim screwdriver it’s a shame…

    I used a small blade tip to life up on the black squares that covered the screw holes. Replacing them after.. I skipped that as it seemed impossible they would even stick back down.

    I am having trouble getting the two screws on the hand grips as the screws are too deep. What should I use to get them?

    I ended up having to buy some cheap amazon screwdrivers and are very disappointed

    Do not pull by the wires! If you do, you better be pretty good at soldering.

    I agree. A circle over the plug would have been better as the picture looks like you just pull on the wires lol.

    Thanks for the comment. I did get a set of tweezers and the negative cable broke anyway. They really could have done a better job at using a different connector for that.

    Great. Didn't pull on cord. Whole thing ripped off.

    Why in the world is this thing so tightly connected?

    Thanks for the comment. I did get a set of tweezers to try to pull it out but still ended up breaking the negative cable. They really could have used a better set of cables and connectors for this.

    Speakers are connected with solder so removing them is not possible without requiring soldering later on. I left them both connected and instead of removing the motherboard completely I just "hinged" it carefully down to facilitate the work following step 18.

    Thank you for offering this info because I spent 20 minutes between scratching my head and searching for any alternatives to just the image above, which had a wire nut/housing (and mine certainly did not). As I began to have an anxiety attack (

    Mine also did not have connectors for the speaker. But like mentioned above, I was able to do repair WITHOUT the need to unsolder the speaker wires. Thanks!
