  • Removing the side handles allows access to remove the faceplate.

  • Remove five TR9 Torx screws.

you must also remove the T8 screw hidden under the label in the battery compartment to free the faceplate.

Precised by Dennis Kim, but to remove the screws you need a TORX TR8 screwdriver (I guess it’s a Torx size 8)

  • Now that the bumpers are easily visible make sure to clean any dirt or grime that may be around the bumpers.

  • The bumpers are connected by a middle plastic cover that is around the Xbox button. Remove this plastic piece to fully reveal the bumpers.

    • Be aware of the sync button loosely placed under the plastic covering. Ensure it is put back before putting back the bumper/plastic cover assembly. (pictured in picture 3)

  • Remove the current bumper assembly by pulling them off the plastic cover. Put on the new bumpers and reassemble that section.

you forgot to include directions for removing the central cover.

And when you do, the connect button pops out, and now I have no clue how to put it back -_-

the bumpers take some finesse to remove, so be patient

You should add a security hex screwdriver to your tools list, along with the gauge that is required.

There is a fifth screw in the battery compartment that holds the faceplate on. Take an exacto knife and cut out sticker where the hole is.

Could you elaborate on the “remove the bumpers” part (last step) please, thank you.
