    • Be careful not to break the plastic tabs, that hold each grip cover to the back of the controller.

    • Remove each grip by inserting the plastic opening tool near the top of the controller.

    • Remove the five 2.3 mm screws with the T8 Torx screwdriver.

    • Four of the screws are located at the bottom tip of each grip and at the top of each grip, near the triggers of the controller.

    • The last screw is located in the center of the battery tray beneath a sticker.

    • Use a T8 Torx Screwdriver to puncture the sticker and remove the final screw.

    Well, you actually need a T8 Torx screwdriver with a hole in the middle…

    • Flip the controller so that the buttons are face up to prevent the vibration motors from falling out of the controller.

    • Remove the D-pad by lifting the bottom and pulling it up.

    • Remove the entire plastic faceplate by pulling it up gently.

    • Remove the thumbsticks by pulling them off from the top.

    There’s a fifth screw behind the information sticker in battery compartment. This needs to be removed in order for the face plate to be separated from the controller.

    • Remove the small black mode switch from the front of the controller.

    • The backplate gets a little stuck on the port at the bottom so you may have to use a prying motion to remove.

    • Be careful in the next step when pulling the main assembly apart from the backplate. There is a ribbon cable that connects the two parts that must stay in tact.

    • Remove the backplate from the main assembly by pulling them apart.

    • The small ribbon cable connects the back cover to the internals of the controller. To remove the cable, lift the black lever on the opposite side of the connector from the cable.

    • Use tweezers to unplug the ribbon cable on the side closest to the back cover by pulling the cable parallel to the surface of the circuit board.

    Be sure to lift the black lever to release the cable!

    I didn't do this when I removed it, luckily nothing bad happened. But I nearly ruined the pins as I tried to repeatedly shove the cable back into the slot. Then I tested the black piece to see if it was a lever and behold it was! Went in perfectly, but I wish this guide made it clear for amateurs like me.

    • Mark each motor according to where it attaches. The rumble motors are different so they will not work if you switch them.

    • Take note of where the red and black motor wires attach because they should be reattached in the same order.

    • Turn over the controller so that the thumbsticks are facing down.

    • Use tweezers and a soldering iron (Soldering Iron Guide) to remove the black and red wires from the motherboard.

    • This will release the rumble motor from the controller assembly.

    Is desoldering the rumble motors actually necessary?

    • Take note of where the grey and black motor wires attach because they should be reattached in the same order.

    • Use the soldering iron to desolder the four wires that connect the top and bottom mother board and remove them from the buttons.

    That green button has nothing to do with this step. It will fall out after step 6.

Thanks for the guide!

I found two little things that you could improve:

The green part on step 14 does not belong in this place. It is the pairing button. (I can send you a pictore of the correct placement)

The cable connectors are flip up / down ones. so you need to flip them up to reinsert them and they are much easier to remove if you flip them up.
