Introduction: Xbox One Elite Wobbly Thumb Stick Fix
do you have a xbox elite controller with a wobbly thumb stick?
mine started to get loose and wobbled around.
this tutorial will help fix it.
this has held up for at-least 4 months now and i haven't had to replace it again.
Next step: Tools needed.
Step 1: Tools Needed
Torx bit: T8
Blue painters tape
X-acto knife ( to precisely cut the painters tape)
scissors would work
Step 2: Remove Sticker & Screw
Remove battery & peel back the sticker
Remove the T8 screw
Step 3: Remove Controller Back
Remove the grips
depress the trigger and wedge your finger as shown in the picture
gently pull away from the controller and it should snap apart.
it might feel stuck but thats because there is some tape holding it down.
Step 4: Remove Screws
remove the 4 T8 screws and the front cover should come apart with out any problem.
Step 5: Reinforce Thumbstick
gently pull the thumbstick base off.
it should just slide straight up.
cut a piece of painters tape as shown.
it should be long enough to wrap the post atleast one time tried to not have it overlap to much.
if its too thick the thumbstick base wont slide back down in place
see the picture for a reference.
once the base is back on just reassemble the controller in reverse and there ya go!!
good luck! any questions either post them here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
