Introduction

Don’t abandon your Astro C40 TR controller if it has some drift problems! With a new joystick module, some screwdrivers, and minor effort, it’ll be as good as new.

Apart from being able to use a screwdriver, this guide requires no prerequisite on technical background.

You will need:

  • An H.20 Hexagonal Screwdriver
  • A 30mm TORX Screwdriver
  • A joystick module for replacement
