use a small tag of double sided tape to hold the counterweights in when you rebuild or its nearly impossible to tip up the two halfs of the controller to fit them together. With the counterweight just slightly stuck into place with a tiny tag of double sided tape you can tip that half of the controller upside down to fit on top of the other half. Still awkward but do-able. Almost impossible otherwise.

IMO this could have benefited from some instructions on how to get the triggers back on, cause it was quite a challenge.

The way I managed to do it, is you've got to reverse both step 11 and step 10 in one go, otherwise it would be impossible to get the trigger peg into the white arm (at least I couldn't figure out a way to do it): before reversing step 11, hold the white arm up and to same side you pushed it in the step 10, and then once you click it back into place, the peg would also go into the slot in the arm. For me it was easier to do for LT than RT - the latter too a few tries, so I would recommend doing LT first and then RT.
