Mijn probleem

The LBR button broke on my original Xbox One Elite controller and that made playing pretty much any game very difficult. For a $140 controller I was not about to give up on having a non-functional piece of HW!

Mijn oplossing

I had to buy a replacement part from eBay, less than $4 shipped. I had to come to iFixit website for any teardown guides and/or repair guides. I found a very good guide on how to tear down the Xbox One generic controller and so I used that as the main guide for my repairs.

I placed the button repair bridge in place but it did not fit. I soon realized the mounting plate for the buttons has two guide pins, and the holes in the replacement piece were a touch smaller than the pins.

Mijn advies

Thanks to the material of the buttons being PVC, I was able to "drill" the holes slightly bigger using one of the many included bits in the Pro Tech kit, I think it was a standard hexagonal drill bit that I used to gently bore the holes bigger. The buttons snapped in place and the assembly after that went well
