In this guide, you will learn how to remove the rumble motors located in the triggers. This task requires you to fully disassemble the triggers on the controller.
Step 1 Battery Pack

Step 2 Side Handles
We recommend using a nylon spudger for this step. A metal spudger is shown.
Grip the controller firmly to remove the side handles, wedging a spudger into the seam between the front and handle plates.
Pry the side plate away from the front plate by moving the spudger back and forth. You will need to do this all the way around the side plate's seam.

There is a hidden screw located in the middle of the controller behind the label.
Use a screwdriver and punch a hole directly in the center of the label.
You may also lift the label if you do not want to puncture it.
