Fixing a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller

Came across this thread on reddit about fixing the Pro Controller for the Nintendo Switch. While I don’t have yet a problem, it’s good to know what fails and how to fix it when it happens.

The main information is in those pictures. The sliders are actually replaceable without having to de-solder the joystick. Get replacement sliders from a replacement joystick. Then simply replace the slider. Far more detailed instructions in above thread.
