Cleaning a Dreamcast Controller

Step 4: Reassembly

After all of the water has evaporated, you can move on to putting the controller back together. First thing to do is to put the dpad and triggers back together. The triggers should just snap back together, but it might take a little but of force. For the analog stick you want to follow this order: base plate, ball with stick, collar (slot goes up), spring, upper housing, and finally the thumbstick. Simply screw the triggers and analog stick back on the way they came off.
