Use this guide to replace the left thumbstick on your Steam Deck. The stick is part of a complete module and needs to be replaced as one unit. Although nearly identical, the procedure for the right thumbstick can be found here.

Before you begin, completely power down and unplug all cables from your Steam Deck. Remember to follow general electrostatic discharge (ESD) safety procedures while repairing the device.

Replacement thumbsticks require calibration to work as expected. Read about how to do that here.

    • To minimize risk of damage, turn on your Steam Deck and allow the battery to discharge below 25% before starting your repairs. A charged lithium-ion battery can be very dangerous if accidentally punctured.

    • Before starting this guide, power down your Steam Deck and unplug any cables.

    • As an extra precaution, Valve recommends putting your Steam Deck into battery storage mode within the BIOS before starting any internal repairs. Read how to do that here.

    • If you have a microSD card installed, make sure to remove it before opening the Steam Deck.

    • Use a Phillips driver to remove the eight screws securing the back cover:

    • Four 9.5 mm screws

    • Four 5.8 mm screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your Steam Deck.

  1. Insert an opening pick into the thin gap between the back cover and the front shell, along the edge of the right grip. Pry up on the back cover to release it from the locking clips.

    • Pry up on the back cover to release it from the locking clips.

  2. Once the clips are disconnected from one edge, the rest disconnect easily. Grip the back cover at the opening you just created and pull it up and away from the device to unclip the long edges. Remove the back cover.

  3. Use a pair of tweezers to remove the piece of foil tape covering the hidden screw on the board shield. If possible, try not to rip or tear this tape so it can be reused. If necessary, you can fashion a replacement by cutting a piece of aluminum foil tape to fit.

  7. The left thumbstick will be on your righthand side when working on the Steam Deck, as it's laying upside down. Use the pointed end of a spudger to lift up the small locking flap on the thumbstick cable's ZIF connector. Use a pair of tweezers to slide the cable out of its connector.

    • Grip the cable by the blue pull tab, not by the cable itself.

  8. Use a Phillips driver to remove the three 5.2 mm screws securing the thumbstick. During reassembly, you may need to hold the Steam Deck off of the work surface so it isn't resting on the new thumbstick while you tighten down the screws.
