Introduzione

The Front Buttons on your Xbox Controller could become unresponsive or sticky. If this happens it could be necessary to remove the Front Buttons to either replace or clean them. This guide will teach you how to access and replace the Front Buttons on your Xbox One Wireless Controller Model 1708.

  1. Slide the battery cover toward the top of the controller to remove it. Lift up  the batteries or the battery pack from the battery compartment.
    • Slide the battery cover toward the top of the controller to remove it.

    • Lift up the batteries or the battery pack from the battery compartment.

  2. Insert a plastic opening tool into the top seam, and  gently work the opening tool to the bottom of the controller. Continue using the opening tool to gently pry the side plate off of the controller.
    • Insert a plastic opening tool into the top seam, and gently work the opening tool to the bottom of the controller.

    • Continue using the opening tool to gently pry the side plate off of the controller.

    • Repeat this process for the second side plate.

    Only use a pry tool! The vibration motor wires are exposed and directly accessible from the side when opening. I attempted to open it with a small knife, expecting to be able to gently pry the clips open, accidentally sliced through my right motor’s wires.

    Not a sharp of course.

  3. Gently peel the battery label  or punch a hole in the center of the sticker in the battery compartment to reveal the hidden screw.
    • Gently peel the battery label or punch a hole in the center of the sticker in the battery compartment to reveal the hidden screw.

    • Remove the five 9mm torx-9 security screws from the back of the controller.

    Torx-8 security bits work as well.

    Torx 8 or 9 wasn’t working. I used 2.0 minus screwdriver

    • Orient the controller so the front plate is facing up.

    • Lift the front cover off of the controller.

  5. Turn the controller face down and gently lift the rear plate.

  7. Turn the device over and remove the directional pad by gently pulling it away from the controller.
    • Turn the device over and remove the directional pad by gently pulling it away from the controller.

    It needs to be made a little clearer that the thin metal retaining ring needs to be unclipped before pulling on the D-pad. A small, flatbladed screwdriver did it nicely for me.

  8. Pull the joysticks off of the controller.
    • Pull the joysticks off of the controller.

    Are the joystick potentiometers soldered to the mother board or just push fit, this guide doesn’t mention soldering so I’m assuming the latter?

    Can you get genuine replacement joystick potentiometers as I’ve only seen cheap eBay type ones?

  9. If the rumble motors fall out of frame, the wires may disconnect from the motherboard . The wires will have to be soldered to reattach the motor.
    • If the rumble motors fall out of frame, the wires may disconnect from the motherboard . The wires will have to be soldered to reattach the motor.

    • Turn the device over and remove the two 70mm torx-6 screws in the bottom left and right corners.

    What if you don’t care about the rumble motors (always turn that feature off anyway), can I just leave them unattached?

  10. Firmly grasp the top and bottom motherboards in opposite hands, then gently pull them apart.
    • Firmly grasp the top and bottom motherboards in opposite hands, then gently pull them apart.

    • The top motherboard is still connected to the bottom motherboard. To fully separate the top motherboard, you will need to use a soldering iron.

    Soldering is not necessary for separation as on the top motherboard it uses a small connector commonly used in wireless assemblies for antennas. Simply pop it of using any prying tool or just your hand but make sure it is the side that has a gold or brassy finish and not a solder joint.

    Hey Wyatt,

    Thanks for the feedback. I was on the team that authored this guide. I did not work on this specific guide so I am not familiar with this specific connector. I will follow up with iFixIt and check this issue. Thanks for the comment!

    Dylan Gross -

    Wyatt is correct that the black wire in the center can be removed from the top motherboard, but it doesn’t do any good to do so as there are two other sets of wires (grey and black twisted pairs leading to the left and right trigger) preventing you from removing the bottom motherboard entirely. These wires are visible in the pictures of this guide.

    Frank Buccella - Replica

    I can further confirm this as I have just pulled one apart. No soldering iron required.

    Brandon - Replica

    What's is the name of the part for wireless on the controller

    justin edge - Replica

    You'll see..

    Kajus Slekys -

    In my controller that black cable (the antenna like) was separated form the board is there any way to solder it again (the socket is still conected to plug)

    Dominik Gałczyński - Replica

    I have the same problem. It popped off the board when firm pressure was applied to reconnect the wire after a repair. I'm going to attempt to apply a small bead of solder to the part that popped off, press it in place, and then heat the connector with my iron. But I am not hopeful at all. It's tight, really tight, and if it works it will be through luck alone.

    Michael Broder -

    Any luck? Theres no pad to get the solder to stick to on mine. Im assuming it is the j1 connection. Any idea what this wire is for?

    Matt Gribbin -

    Can someone help to find out the actual name of RF connector type?

  12. Remove the three 70mm torx-6 screws from the center of the bottom motherboard. Remove the two 70mm torx-6 screws next to the rumble motors on the bottom motherboard. Remove the one 70mm torx-6 screw located on the left side of the bottom motherboard.

    • Remove the plastic clip by sliding it upwards.

  14. Use a spudger to release the small hooks at each end of the left and right bumper. After you release these hooks, be careful as you separate the face plate from the back of the controller. The connect/sync button (see second image) is held in by this face plate and will come loose as you perform this step.

    • After you release these hooks, be careful as you separate the face plate from the back of the controller. The connect/sync button (see second image) is held in by this face plate and will come loose as you perform this step.

    Watch for the tiny button that sticks out from the top - it’s the wireless connect/sync button.  It will fall out and is easy to lose.  During reassembly, I found it easier to put the bumper back in first, then use a tweezers to insert the button back into place.

Thanks for the contribution for you and helped a lot of people.

You don't need to desolder anything to remove the top motherboard!

Those black and grey wires go to the vibration motors in the triggers. Remove the covers on the triggers along with the motors, and carefully remove the wires from clips on the front of the controller. Make sure you get the black signal wire. You can now safely remove the two boards from eachother.

I needed a guide for this because my “X” button was sticking and I ended up doing the whole thing without separating the motherboards, cleaning everything that touches the button, and it worked like a charm. Thank you very much for the guide!
