The Nintendo Switch comes with two Joy-Con controllers. This guide shows how to replace the joystick of the left Joy-Con. The procedure for repairing the right Joy-Con is different, so be sure to follow the correct set of instructions for your controller.

    • Remove the four Tri-Point Y00 screws from the back panel of the Joy-Con.

    • These screws are each 6.2 mm long, but it still a good idea to keep them organized and make sure they go back in their proper places!

  1. Insert an opening pick into the seam at the bottom edge of the controller (opposite the L and ZL buttons). Slowly slide the flat edge of your opening pick up the side of the Joy-Con. Be careful not to slide the opening pick too far inside the Joy-Con. This may damage the inner components. The back panel loosens fairly easily, so not much pressure is needed.

  2. With the charging rail facing away from you, open the the Joy-Con like a book. Don’t try to fully remove the back panel yet. There are still two cables connecting the charging rail to the motherboard.

  3. Use a spudger to gently pry the battery connector straight up from its socket on the motherboard. This will keep the Joy-Con from powering on during the repair. Use caution while working around the vibration motor cable that runs close to the battery connector.

    • Do not attempt to remove the midframe yet. There is a fragile cable that still connects the ZL button on the midframe to the motherboard underneath.

  6. Carefully flip the midframe over, away from the motherboard, as if you were turning the page of a book.

    • Do your best not to stress the thin ribbon cable attached to the ZL button during this step.

  7. The ZL button cable is locked in place by a small ZIF connector on the motherboard. Use tweezers or a spudger to flip up the ZIF connector lock opposite the cable. Use tweezers to gently pull the ZL button flex cable out of the ZIF connector socket. The midframe is now disconnected and can be removed.

  8. The ribbon cable connecting the minus button of the Joy-Con to the motherboard runs over the back of joystick. It is possible to remove the joystick without disconnecting this cable, but it's much easier to do so when it is disconnected and out of the way. Unlock the minus button’s ZIF connector and disconnect the cable. Unlock the minus button’s ZIF connector and disconnect the cable.

    • There is a thin black gasket around the hole where the joystick pokes through the Joy-Con. Do your best not to disturb this gasket as you remove the joystick!

Thx This really helped

Stev Steve - Yanıt

Thanks Kyler - I just replaced 4 joysticks and they’re all working perfectly.

One final step to remember to go in and calibrate the controller.

David K - Yanıt

You're welcome I'm glad I could assist you in your repairs!

Kyler Saunders -

Thanks. This was just the right amount of info and now my left stick drift is gone….for now.

Jason Hoover - Yanıt

I’m having serious drift issues with the left Joy Con but, do I need to replace the joystick to relieve that issue due to “wear and tear” or, can I open it up and clean it (or something of that nature) to make it work properly again?
