need an update for the “a” variant (cfi-zct1w a)

this guide works for it up until a point (the touchpad), the a variant only has 1 screw instead of two and i couldn’t get the touchpad itself removed from it’s bracket (steps 30/31)

also the “a” variant is missing the light guide bracket (step 25)

Two broken controllers became a working one. I had a small discrepancy with touchpad but figured it out. Thanks for the guide.
