Introduction

This guide takes you step by step through the process required to remove the buttons on the Amazon Fire remote. This task is simple and should not take more than a few minutes. To complete this you will need a plastic opening tool, triangle screwdriver, and a pair of precision tweezers. If you follow the easy steps you will successfully remove the buttons on the remote.

    BEWARE! I took the circular button off because, after dropping the remote, the circle would not press down on the right side, however, all of the other functions (up, down, left and the center select button were working fine). After popping the circular button out and putting it back in, now none of the controls will press down. I'm sure it probably just needs to be aligned better but how exactly?

    Mine does not have a screw under the button? So what now. It looks as if the remote has side clips that hold it togather?

You could probably find them on eBay.
