    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…

    • 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

  5. Unplug outer case rumble motor connector from the motherboard with your fingers.
    • Unplug outer case rumble motor connector from the motherboard with your fingers.

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

    Brandon - Replica

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

    Chris -

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

    Why in the world is this thing so tightly connected?

    • Remove the white flex cable with the tweezers.

    Attention! You have to flip up gently the small plastic cap on top of the ribbon connector. Do not try to slide the plastic cap horizontally. This method holds for all ribbon connectors.

    Marc Peetermans - Replica

    Why is it necessary? The white flex cable doesn’t seem to block the way to the Bluetooth unit.

    metm98 - Replica

    It is a easy step and makes dealing with everything else a little easier.

    Isn’t it WiFi?

    Brayton Dickey - Replica

    This step is unnecessary, there is no reason to go through it.

    jonv85 - Replica

    Why would you do this? It’s not blocking anything. Not even near the wifi module.

    N64 - Replica

    I’m just curious, as a technician gamer, you say it makes it easier, but I don’t see how it would affect the Bluetooth, sure the motherboard or the touch screen, but the Bluetooth chip is out of the way. I’m not trying to be critical, just want to understand.

    • With your fingers, lift and remove bluetooth board.

    • Remove the board carefully as there are still two wires attached.

    These little boards (Bluetooth and NFC) have a small connector but also have double sided tape holding them down. So you may need to apply more force than expected to remove these due to the tape.

  8. Disconnect the black and white wires off of the back of the bluetooth module. Disconnect the black and white wires off of the back of the bluetooth module.
    • Disconnect the black and white wires off of the back of the bluetooth module.

    One important thing to note here is how the black and white wires are routed to the board. You should take a picture since if you do not route these the same way, the wires can interfere with the button or get trapped when you assemble the case back possible blocking a screw hole.

    Isn’t it Wi-Fi?

    Brayton Dickey - Replica

    Any idea what the name of the white wire is? I accidentally broke through mine.. having trouble finding a replacement

    Does it really matter?

    martin8777 -

    Thanks a lot for the guide. I just fixed my gamepad and it appears to be working good. Just one question: why do you include the step in which you remove the flatflex cable to the other pcb? It seems unnecesary

    • With your fingers, unplug the left speaker cable from the motherboard.

    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.

    dietcokediva - Replica

    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!

    There was a little tab on the top of the male end of the connectors that I had to push to get them out.

    Reed Deemer - Replica

    Take a small flat head screw driver and push out and to the left on top of the white part of the connector. If you try to use tweezers on this model it will not come out.

    There is also a small connecter on the left side from the big connector.

    Paulus 68 - Replica

    The small connector is the digitizer (touch senor panel) - The large connector is the actual display

    Louis Bellanca - Replica

    For the small connector, lift up the black part on top from this side.

    theonlygeezy - Replica

    I broke that small connector (the lid) how can I fix that? The flex is still goes there but I won't get touch response unless I apply some pressure to it!

    davisrayler - Replica

    if you fixed it, can you tell me how did you do it?

    Bast -

    The small grey ribbon has a clasp holding it down. It needs to be opened in the opposite direction of the black clasp on the wide ribbon before you disconnect the ribbon.

  15. Remove the small orange ribbon with the tweezers.
    • Remove the small orange ribbon with the tweezers.

    These tiny connectors are difficult to see how to manipulate. Similar to other ribbon connectors, there is a lever that flips up to release the ribbon cable. However, unlike the larger connectors, the lever flips up from the opposite side that the connector enters. Run your tweezers up the back side of the connector body, and the grey top should flip to vertical. Then the ribbon cable will slide out.

    Matt Cross - Replica

    This small connector is attached to the screen as well.

    What do I do if I broke off the gray top cover that went over the wire things.

    Amber Umphrey - Replica

    You probably don’t need this anymore, but that happened to me a while ago and now i’m gonna have to buy a new motherboard. Your motherboard is as good as done for

    When trying to remove the red and black cords, it came off the green board. Is there a way to reconnect them?

    Judy Swenson - Replica

    I didn't disconnect the cable, isn't really necessary.
