Einleitung

This guide aims to walk you through the steps required in replacing the face buttons on the right Joy-Con for the Nintendo Switch. This repair is slightly more difficult than the left Joy-Con as there are more components built into the right than there are in the left. Additional components to be aware of include the Infrared Sensor, Bluetooth Antenna, and NFC Antenna.

    • Insert the end of a plastic opening pick between the IR sensor and the back panel.

    • Run the tool along the edge, gently applying pressure downwards, to release the back panel from the clips holding it in place.

    • Do not use any metal tools for this step as you will risk damaging the plastic clips holding the back panel in place.

    • Open the Joy-Con as if it was a book, rotating around the black guide rail.

    • Pull the Bluetooth antenna out of its compartment and out of the way of the battery.

    • Using a plastic opening tool, lift the battery up and out of its compartment from the right edge.

    • The battery is held in place by adhesive tape and may take a bit of force to remove.

    • Be careful not to pull the battery or antenna out completely as they are still connected to the motherboard.

    • Using a spudger, gently pry upwards on both the left and right sides of the vibrator.

    • The vibrator is held in place with adhesive so it may take a bit of force to remove.

    • Once the vibrator is removed from its holder do not disconnect the cable. Instead, just move it to the side.

    • Using tweezers, lift the buttons out from their holders.

    • Note that the buttons have notches to ensure the right orientation when replacing. If you do not line up the notches properly the buttons may be unresponsive.

Abschluss

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. Be sure not to screw the motherboard in too tight as this may affect the responsiveness of the buttons. Always apply even pressure to screws when reinstalling the components; one side should not be tighter than the other.

Thank you. The guide from the company I bought the replacement buttons from on Amazon was extremely lacking. This was on point.
