This is where I screwed up so I recommend extra caution for other newbies. Only the black part is supposed to come off. Don't be an idiot like me and pry off too much...

Hello, I have the PCH-2001 model of the PS vita and the right analog stick went out. I ordered a replacement and the stick is slightly larger than the original. The original has a black rectangle on the back, the new version has the star version, which is what you have on this website as the replacement part. Any help here would be much appreciated. Thanks.
