    Soo, the Joy Cons took me about 2 HOURS to change, cost me 1 finger and took at least 1 man card away from me... but hopefully it made for a good video! SUBSCRIBE Giveaways below!

    you probably would have been better off with screwdrivers instead of a drill

    I recently successfully replaced the joystick on my left joycon, and I about died when he cut the wire to get the battery pack off

    I remember replacing my Wii case with a custom colored one and I swear to god, it took me something like 3-4 hours to complete because there was something like 80 super tiny screws just hidden everywhere and some of them were super soft so I stripped some of them. Once I was all done, I had something like 15 screws of varying sizes left over and the case still felt like it was on too tight or something. The best part was that I barely played my Wii at all and ended up selling it some months later.

    Watching this video 10 months late, while changing my own joy cons. Wondering why you would even need the drill.

    Wood: So the tri-wing screws.....
    Me: Oh, never mind then.

    The drill made me cringe hard, I just always use a regular screwdriver for this stuff. Love your vids though. I'm still tempted to get a see thru blue case for my OG Switch and gray joycons.

    This video is really funny cause its almost exactly the same things that happened to me while changing joy con scins. I did not hurt myself doing it, but I did spend a lot of money buying new joy cons cause of all those wrecked ribbon cables and screwheads. I really like my left joy con with custom D-pad, cause I got it perfect in 1st try. I do regret however trying with the right joy con and ruining three perfectly good joy cons...

    Funny thing is that he is using youtube to find out how to take his stuff apart when he is already posting video on youtube, lol strange

    Use a screw driver? The switch definitely doesn’t require power tools for a shell exchange
