How to replace an xbox 360 wireless controller 3D analog sensor

My right analog stick is messed up beyond belief so I'd much rather replace the 3d instead of buying a whole new controller. I know I have to de-solder the 3d from the back of the board, but I'm not exactly sure of all the points that need to be done, so my question is as follows:

Can someone give me a little pictorial on which points I need to un-solder and how to correctly install the new 3d?

I have a CG board (not CG2)

Thanks in advance

thomas peck, use this as a general guide. All you need to do, is to unsolder the connector and solder the new joystick in place. It should be a straight forward repair. Of course, you'll need a soldering iron, a desoldering wick (or solder sucker, flux and solder to repair the joystick...Hope this helps,

Thanks! I managed to remove it and install the new one thanks to this! Do you think you could make one of the left stick as well? That would be much appreciated.
