The truth is, like 7 seven out 10 Xbox controllers will break when dropped as they are pretty weak. But what is the controller fell accidentally and something on the inside went wrong, and then you realize that you don’t have any torx screw drivers to open the damn thing, what do you do? Well, don’t worry my friend as I have listed a number of steps on how you are supposed to open the gamer. Continue reading and find out.

Step number one is to remove the battery pack on the back of the controller.

Step two, remove the handle covers – after doing this, you will be allowed access to the torx screws from the front and the back panels of the gamer. To open the handle, I will recommend that you use something like a small plastic trim tool. If not, use small flathead screwdriver to gently pry the plastic cover. So, what you need to do is to use the trim plastic of the flathead screwdriver to insert at the base of the handle where the front, sides and the back molding of the controller meets. Then pry it off the controller, after you get hold of the edge.

Step three is to remove the Torx screw behind the battery compartment. You will find this screw under the warranty sticker. This screw is needed to separate the back and the front of the controller. Poke a hole through the middle of the sticker with your screw driver – note: this will void your warranty. Remove the screw using your normal screw driver and then set it aside in a safe place.

Step four is to remove the remaining torx screws from the controller. There are a total of four remain screws that you will need to remove. Since you don’t have a torx screwdriver, use your flathead to remove the screws but be very gentle and don’t use force as you may end up destroying the screws. After removing them, make sure that place them in a safe place for when reassembling the controller.

The last step is to remove the back and front panels of the controller. Now after removing the side handles plus the torx screws, you can now lift the back and the front panels off the controller’s main frame. But be careful as some wires and other circuitry is now exposed.

As you can see, you don’t have to have a torx screwdriver for you to open your controller, you can easily do it without it. Trust me.
