Anyone else come here because of a broken thumb sick. It's like hey we know how to swap the attachments how about some info on how to fix it when it breaks ?

This isn’t the controller manual, it’s supposed to be a replacement guide. Is it not obvious that people that come here are looking to actually replace the thumbstick? Did the author just get bored?
