Replaced joy-con shell; bungled joystick?

I did a shell replacement on my whole Switch, including the body and both joy-cons. Everything went great except for the right joy-con: I must have screwed up the joystick because now it’s permanently sending “joystick right” anytime it’s connected to my unit. The joystick itself looks just fine, it doesn’t look bent. The only thing I can think of is maybe I screwed up the ribbon cable when I plugged it back into the joy-con circuit board.

Has this happened to anybody else? If so, is there a fix? If not, is there a place I can buy a new joystick assembly for the right joy-con?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have a similar issue - try lifting the rubber flap that covers the Joystick guts (just under the stick). Then blast some compressed air into here and move stick blast, move stick, blast. See if that helps. Then run the analogue stick configuration from settings.

How did you get the rubber cap back on? It won't fit in for me.

You list it back with two pins it will flap and stay back if done right. A little fiddly but if not you hold while someone else sprays
