    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…

  4. Remove 10 9mm screws with Tri-Wing size Y1 screwdriver around the outer case. Lift up on the back of case. Lift gently because the rumble motor in the back of the case is still connected by a cable to the motherboard.

    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.

This doesn't show anything about taking the front of the housing off, is that relatively straightforward?
