Step 5: Open and Clean the Control Stick Housing
1.) Remove the black screw
2.) Holding the top and bottom of the housing, lift the two tabs
In doing so, the innards of the control stick will be revealed. The attachment to the board should be removed after opening.
3.) Remove the Axis control base from the Control Stick Housing (bottom)
4.) Remove y-axis
5.) Rotate and remove x-axis
6.) Remove spring cover and spring
This would also be a good time to replace the spring if need be, as a new spring can "spring" new life into a dull control stick.
7.) Rotate and Remove Control Stick from the Control Stick housing (top)
After cleaning, reassemble the housing in the reverse order that it was taken apart.
