Left trigger not working

I took apart the controller to see and put it back together to see if maybe the button was just loose but that didn't seem to fix the issue. What would you suggest my next move be? I'm trying not to purchase a new one

Is this a good question?

The bottom triggers are tricky to reassemble. You probably didn't do it right. You need to feel the popping of the button. If it doesn't feel like there is two states, then you need to reassemble it.

If your comfortable taking it apart again clean everything with isopropal alcohol. Sweat from your hands gets into the controller and gums up the functionality of the controller. If the feel of the button is off dead feeling it may be plan broke but if it still feels right a good cleaning can do wonders
