    • Continue using the opening tool to gently pry the side plate off of the controller.

    • Repeat this process for the second side plate.

    Only use a pry tool! The vibration motor wires are exposed and directly accessible from the side when opening. I attempted to open it with a small knife, expecting to be able to gently pry the clips open, accidentally sliced through my right motor’s wires.

    If you have some Guitar picks laying around they work GREAT!

    • Remove the five 9mm torx-9 security screws from the back of the controller.

    Torx-8 security bits work as well.

    Torx 8 or 9 wasn’t working. I used 2.0 minus screwdriver

    The 2.0 minus worked for me as well.

    • Turn the controller face down and gently lift the rear plate.

    Reassembly: When placing the back cover on: notice that the battery terminals need to slide inside the cover first. Then compress the triggers slightly, Then the cover will be aligned correctly. Then add the front cover and add screws so it doesn’t come undone.

    • Pull the joysticks off of the controller.

    Are the joystick potentiometers soldered to the mother board or just push fit, this guide doesn’t mention soldering so I’m assuming the latter?

    Can you get genuine replacement joystick potentiometers as I’ve only seen cheap eBay type ones?

    Alan - Responder

    The actual joysticks themselves are soldered into the bottom motherboard.

How about the square thing with the stick and hinges that the joystick is attached to? I think it’s called the Module. I have a joystick drift / drifting problem and that may help me out. Thanks.

Cory C - Responder

Agreed. That’s actually the part I need to replace too. The module.

Thomas Tomchak -

followed this guide to take the controller apart because I had a joystick that was sticking, my solution was to put some 3in1 oil on the module that was sticking and it seems to be working a lot better now.

@corytc and @tomchak I did replace the module, in general, you buy (Amazon or eBay) you will receive a module of 6 modules you need a multimeter and test each module interface, measure both resistances and subtract them, the one nearest zero is the module you will use since is the one with least drift from the factory.

Just disassemble it, turn upside down uses a solder remover and unsolder the old one, place the new one solder back, boom you are done.

Like you will need an iron solder with medium and thin tips, I used lead-free solder, so is a patience test, be careful with the wires from the rumbles, try not to unsolder them since is a thin wire and is difficult, like I have big hands so took me a while to solder back.

Just want to say the hardest part is carefully prying off the plastic covers on the handles. It’s also not necessary to remove the back cover for simply replacing the joysticks. Other than that, it’s very easy. I would guess this is rated at moderate difficulty simply due to the plastic covers.

Where can one get the replacement joysticks ?
