Einleitung

After long periods of using the Oculus Quest 2, controller drift can form, causing you to slowly move in-game when no input to the controller is provided. In this guide, you'll learn how to stop the annoying issue of controllers drifting.

  1. Fix Oculus Quest 2 Controller Drift, Remove Battery From Controller: Schritt 1, Bild 1 von 1
    • Open the battery compartment and remove the AA battery inside.

  2. Fix Oculus Quest 2 Controller Drift, Remove Controller Faceplate: Schritt 2, Bild 1 von 2 Fix Oculus Quest 2 Controller Drift, Remove Controller Faceplate: Schritt 2, Bild 2 von 2
    • Remove the black plastic faceplate using an iFixit opening tool, Jimmy, or even a flathead screwdriver.

    • The plate is secured with adhesive and might be difficult to remove for the first time. You don't need to worry as the plate is additionally held in place with plastic posts.

  3. Fix Oculus Quest 2 Controller Drift, Remove Joystick Cap: Schritt 3, Bild 1 von 1
    • Gently pull on the top of the joystick until the cap comes off.

    • There is a spring that's located between the joystick housing and the cap. Don't bend or break this spring as it controls the touch sensor.

  4. Fix Oculus Quest 2 Controller Drift, Clean Controller Joystick: Schritt 4, Bild 1 von 1
    • Start by spraying some compressed air into the joystick housing to get rid of any large particles inside.

    • Apply a small amount of contact cleaner or 90% or greater isopropyl alcohol to the joystick and move the joystick around, and then wait for it to dry.

    • Make sure to wait for the contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol to dry before assembling.

Abschluss

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

I did that and it works, but now the touch sensor on the thumb stick doesn’t work. Any ideas?

The spring that goes between the joystick housing and the cap is what connects the touch sensor to the controller. While i did not inspect the cap to see for myself i believe there should be a metal contact on the underside of the cap that the spring should be touching.

Tl;dr: Make sure the spring between the joystick cap and housing is properly connected to both sides.

Thanks, just what i needed.

Just one problem.

You never mention the spring that goes between the joystick housing and the cap. I understand that you took it off completely to get a better picture, but to me it seems better to not take it off completely and just let the joystick cap hang by the spring while you spray cleaner down into the housing. As long as you're careful not to bend or break the spring i believe this would lower the chance of the touch sensor not working like one of the users here already have problems with.

Otherwise the guide is good and on-point.

I should mention tho, i bought my quest on day one so perhaps my controller is an earlier model. On my controller the spring between the joystick cap and housing wasn't easily removable from either side, which is why i decided to leave the cap hanging. It could be that on later models the spring is not connected to the cap but instead is just pressing up against it.

The spring is still there! It might be a bit hard to see however and I’ll note that in the guide.
