Mad Catz TE stick, swap 24 mm button issue


#1

hey all,

  so i got my buttons in and swapped the main 8, but when i went to change the two small ones, i cant seem to get the wires off or  reach my hand down there to push the tabs in.  any suggestions?

pull harder. try some needle nose pliers for leverage.


#3

Haven’t done this ina while but there is a way to pop off those 24s without comlpetely disassembling the bottom (which is what i first did). Pop it out one tab at a time with a thin screwdriver and remove the wires as they are dangling out of the case.


#4

To push in the tabs I happened to have a clay scupting tool that was bent at the perfect angle to push in the hard to reach tab in as I pushed the other side with a screw driver. Anything shaped like a dentist mirror that is rigid enough should do.


#5

Use a long thin flat-head screw driver to push one of the tabs you can’t reach while using one of your fingers to hit the other tab. That’s how I got mine off.
