Instructions for opening your Controller
Using the step-by-step plan below, we will show you how to open a PlayStation 4 Controller. The idea is exactly the same as for the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch Controllers.
First things first: make sure you have the right tools available. See below which tools you need:
Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controller: Tri-wing screwdriver
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller: 3mm screwdriver
In the step-by-step plan below, a GEN 4, 5 PS4 Controller was used. Check this page to see which generation of Controller you have.
Step 1: Unscrew the controller using a 3mm screwdriver. There are four screws that you have to loosen. Use the 'open shell tool' to gently open the controller.
Step 2: Disconnect the cable as shown in the picture below.
Step 3: Disconnect the battery by gently pulling out the white plug.
Step 4: Unscrew the screw and remove the battery holder.
Step 5: Disconnect the lightbar cable.
Step 6: Remove the rubber holders and 'old' buttons.
