Introduction

Use this guide to replace a worn out, broken or damaged shell of a DualShock 3 controller.

The DualShock 3 weighs about 192 grams and the product dimensions are 15.98 X 5.99 X 9.98 cm. It has a connection port USB mini B but also utilizes Bluetooth technology wireless connection for seamless gameplay.

The following procedure will require disassembling the controller and assembling it back after replacing the damaged front shell which may be caused by breaking when dropped one too many times on the ground or from dislodged joy sticks due to friction. This may lead to damage of the interior of the controller such as the motherboard, battery or motors for example.

Before beginning make sure to disconnect from any external power source like the console.
