Steam Controller Repairability Score: 8 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

The only adhesive we encountered was on the touchpads. All other mechanical connections are made with screws.

The Controller's relatively modular construction means replacing a single component will be a simple task.

While we always say screws before glue, the non-magnetic screws used in this controller are apt to get misplaced and throw a wrench into repairs.

The most likely-to-fail component, the thumbstick, is soldered directly to the motherboard.
