Joy Con still drifts just after replacement

I had a really bad up/left drift problem on my left joycon, so I ordered the repair kit and followed the guide. After replacing the stick it now has a slight downward drift problem, noticeable in calibration and while playing a game (tested game was Animal Crossing New Horizons, the character would slowly move downward when the stick was not being touched)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Make sure the ribbon cable and the connector for the joystick is clean. Contaminants there can sometimes cause drift
