    • We recommend using a nylon spudger for this step. A metal spudger is shown.

    • Grip the controller firmly to remove the side handles, wedging a spudger into the seam between the front and handle plates.

    • Pry the side plate away from the front plate by moving the spudger back and forth. You will need to do this all the way around the side plate's seam.

    Start prying the side plate off underneath the trigger, this makes it easier to disconnect the other clips connecting the side plate to the backplate.

    One you take it off, is it possible to click it back in?

    Aiden Bear - Antwoord

    As long as you don’t exceed the couple tons you need to take it off you should be able to put it back.

    I don’t have a squdger

    getting those handles back on seems impossible, they just dont fit as well, a gap remains even after snapping into place.

    Dont think ill be doing this in the future

    Spoutin Wyze - Antwoord

    edit: wiggled the bo9ttom middlewith the handles off and somethign finally “clicked” into place for that extra 1/4 mm for the down arrow on my D-Pad to click back up into place!.

    • There is a hidden screw located in the middle of the controller behind the label.

    • Use a screwdriver and punch a hole directly in the center of the label.

    • You may also lift the label if you do not want to puncture it.

    • Remove the five 10mm screws located on the back of the controller using the T8 Security Torx Screwdriver.

    i damaged my screws. how do i get the screws out?

    tenzin - Antwoord

    wait. i just watched a video guide on ifixit's youtube channel about damaged screws. i'll try those methods.

    tenzin - Antwoord

    It's a t8 or t9 security bit btw, I got the top two out with a regular T8, but the bottom two and middle needed a T9 Security bit.

    David Loper - Antwoord

    All five faceplate/backplate screws in the controller I disassembled were T8 security fasteners.

    John Dziedzic - Antwoord

    Am I doing something wrong because I got the tool it said I needed and got the middle screw out but the others have a bump or something in the center of the screw and it won't fit.

    kolton77 - Antwoord

    The T8 is only good for the middle screw on my One S controller. The others require something bigger

    Matej Skelo - Antwoord

    These requires SECURITY Torx bits (they have a cannulated hole in the driver). I don't believe the iFixIt branded driver is cannulated but you can buy a set of bits from DeWalt DWAX200 which is overkill but has what you need.

    jhighsmith - Antwoord

    The driver that iFixIt sells is cannulated.

    You can bypass it with a 1.5mm flathead.

    thank you for this. worked for me

    Mr Anderson (Evolluisionist) -

    These screws required a T10, not T8.

    Armand - Antwoord

    TR9. A $10 kit from Walmart has the bit/driver in it and extra goodies to make life simple.

    Matt Martin - Antwoord

    As weird as it sounds, the top 2 came out for me with a flathead- but the bottom two and the middle one wont

    macybrooksevans - Antwoord

    If you damage the middle part of the screws you can still take it out with the same screwdriver.

    needed a T8H, not easy to see.

    Michael - Antwoord

    You need a T8 and the kit is not $10 it’s $13.88 Hyper Tough Electronic Kit. In the hardware section at WalMart it a T8 because I tried everything and only a T8 fit it like a magnet. And the dumbass that wrote the article there is only 1 freaking screw.

    • Remove the backplate.

    • You may let the rumble motors hang freely out of their sockets.

    • De-solder the soldered joints while holding the red and black wires down on the top motherboard.

    • De-solder the black and gray wires that are attached to the top motherboard.

    • Remove the rumble motors and set them aside.

    • Be careful while using the soldering iron not to damage other components or hurt yourself.

    • For information on how to solder, click here.

    Steps 6-8 aren't completely necessary, and are very risky if you aren't good at soldering. It would seem the only reason to remove the motherboard and mess with all this soldering is just so you can reach both screws on the trigger in step 10. However, you can reach them already with a small-bodied screwdriver. Although you might have to rest the screwdriver on the black square processor to reach the bottom screw, it shouldn't damage the processor or motherboard to jimmy that screw out.

    Robert Rapier - Antwoord

    like mentioned by ‘Robert Rapier’ you can skip the de-soldering in most cases,

    for example cleaning or changing the buttons is doable, but the grey and black wires are pretty short

    and wired through the inner case so it can get a bit fiddly and you have to be careful not to damage them in the process.

    If you have a soldering station around i would still recommend using it.

    • Unscrew the two 7mm T6 screws located near the rumble motor sockets.

    Are these just T6 screws or Torx security T6 that is cannulated?

    Kenan Vickstrom - Antwoord

    The outer screws are security screws. The ones on the system boards are Torx.

    • Remove the six T6 Torx screws located on the bottom motherboard.

    Where can I find the connectors at for the motherboard??

    lillarrypimp1993 - Antwoord

    This guide completely skips the part about removing the trigger buttons. There are 2 screws per trigger that need to be removed so there are actually 10 T6 screws to remove.

    Navy Vet 2015 - Antwoord

    There’s also 2 small rumble packs under the trigger buttons that no one mentioned. Someone got lazy when writing this step.

    Navy Vet 2015 - Antwoord

    Hey @jasonasnes good catch! It looks like maybe they forgot to add the trigger/trigger rumble motor prerequisite, so I went ahead and added that in there. That guide makes no mention of how the rumble motors are attached, but I think they’re soldered to the motherboard, so I added a note to desolder those wires prior to removal. I think you could probably also just desolder those wires and leave the triggers in place when removing the motherboard, but I’m not certain! Hope that helps!

    Sam Goldheart - Antwoord

    @sam I was able to complete this with the missing information but thank you for updating it for those to come in the future. Minus these couple of discrepancies and it’s a great guide. Yes, all 4 of the rumble motors are soldered onto the upper motherboard. Step 6 actually highlights this with the exception of mentioning the 2 small rumble motors in the triggers. You bring up a good point, it might be possible to leave the triggers in place during this process. I used this guide as a teardown instead of as a replacement so I could refurbish the plastic shell and clean the interior of my day one controller so I completely stripped mine. However, I believe that the triggers could remain in place if your goal is to get to the lower motherboard.

    Navy Vet 2015 - Antwoord

    You can lift off the top motherboard without desoldering the black/red wires to the large rumble motors, just be careful because the wires are delicate enough that you can break them off at the solder joint. It’s not a huge deal if you do, because they’re long enough that you can strip the ends and have plenty of room to resolder.

    You can even very carefully remove the lower motherboard without desoldering the black/gray wires, and without removing the trigger assemblies, but there’s almost no room to work in there if you choose to go this route, because the wires will leave you only at most an inch of space to get in there under the lower motherboard. Also, leaving the trigger assemblies in place makes it very difficult to get the lower motherboard back into place without pinching or moving the conductive rubber button pad.

    • Remove the bumpers by prying them off of the pegs that secure them, using a spudger. They are located on the front and back of the controller.

    • A standard nylon spudger is recommended for this step. Using a metal spudger near the motherboard as shown risks damaging your device.

    At some point I had 2 little white pieces come out and I didnt see them till the very end. Does anyone know where these are spossed to go? They kinda look looe shims? Thank you.

    myles bartlett - Antwoord

    They go behind the trigger buttons on the board against the metal. Narrow side towards the button.

    • Lift the piece surrounding the Home button off of its pegs.

    • Pry it off of the other side, using a spudger on the pins.

    • A standard nylon spudger is recommended for this step. Using a metal spudger near the motherboard as shown risks damaging your device.

    • Removing this piece may require a lot of force.

    2 things missing in this step:

    1) You will have to press down on the power button in order to release the plastic retaining piece.

    2) The button that syncs the controller to the system completely separates from the plastic frame. If you're not careful you could lose the thing.

    Navy Vet 2015 - Antwoord

    Thanks NavyVet2015!

    The sync button fell out on me and I was pondering what it was for a while.

    Nothing is holding that little guy in so watch it!

Do you know where we can get the original analogue module for the joystick?

Farhan Feroze - Antwoord

it does not exists, so you should buy generic replacement spare part
