Introduction

Use this guide to remove the rear cover of a DualShock 3 controller.

Remove the five 7.2 mm Phillips screws securing the rear cover to the controller.

 

Step 2
Image 1/1:

Push the center of the rear cover (between the two analog sticks) and slightly lift the lower edge of it away from the rest of the controller.

 

Step 3
Image 1/2: Pull the rear cover away from the rest of the controller, being careful not to pop off the #2 triggers.

Push the rear cover slightly toward the top edge of the controller to clear the front edge of the #2 triggers.
Pull the rear cover away from the rest of the controller, being careful not to pop off the #2 triggers.
If you happen to accidentally pop off the trigger buttons, we have a trigger button guide to reattach them.
