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

  • Remove the bumpers by pulling them off the top of the controller. Put on the new bumpers and reassemble the middle plastic cover.

you forgot to include directions for removing the central cover.
