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:

PlayStation 4 Controller3mm screwdriver and 'open shell tool'

Xbox One ControllerTorx8 and Torx6 screwdrivers (buttons and thumbsticks)

Nintendo Switch Joy-Con ControllerTri-wing 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-by-step plan:

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.
