    When re-asembling, be careful to check that all buttons/triggers are moving correctly. They can get misaligned when prying the two shell halves apart.

    This part is missing vital information on how to correctly pry the case open. In the 3rd picture you can see there is actually damaged/broken clip already. In order to open the case without damage to the plastic clips inside the controller holding the plastics together you need to insert thin piece of metal between the trigger buttons on each side and push the clip outwards before trying to separate the parts, and if done correctly there is no force needed to pry open the controller. There is actually no necessary need for the clips, but if you want to keep your controller in mint condition without voiding the warranty, take care not to break these clips.

    Your advice for opening shell was so bad and harmful.

    It's not correct

    And two more tiny clips to the left and right of the headphone & EXT port. They’re VERY delicate, reckless prying WILL break at least ONE of these.

    • Unplug the black and red wires from the power port located on the motherboard.

    Be extra careful - the power port socket pulled loose from the motherboard for me. I would suggest holding down the socket itself with one tool and gradually loosening the plug from the port.

Can’t see an updated guide, and this one worked perfectly fine. Used to replace the buttons on a knock-off DualShock 4 from AliExpress. Construction was largely the same, only devoid of a screw anchoring the battery cradle. Would argue this was an extremely easy repair!
