This guide will help you to remove the outer case and be able to open the Nintendo Wii U Gamepad. You will need a Tri-WIng Y1 screw driver.

    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…

    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.

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

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