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

Hope this helps

Is the L1 button not working or the L2? If the L2 button is not working, you can pop it off the assembled controller with a Spudger. When you do that, you should see the rubber buttons that the L2 button pushes down on.

Realign the rubber button and rubber strip into the plastic channel and then put the hard L2 button back on (pinch the sides of the button gently and then insert them back into the assembled controller, they should snap in place).

After that, try the L2 button; you should hear a clicking sound.

It sounds like you wore out your controller. You could repair it or just get another controller. I wouldn’t mess with it, I would get another controller.
