Just a tip for people doing this repair. DO NOT remove the two ribbon cables between the two parts unless you absolutely have to. I pretty much destroyed my right joycon doing so. One of the cables was so hard to replace for me that I ended up breaking the clip that holds it in. My mistake, I could’ve been more careful but it’s probably best to just not even take them out in the first place. I’ve heard these cables are very finicky to position correctly anyways.

Ok, added the bullet to step 6 so that people know. Thanks for pointing it out!

I did not need to take off the ZR button to fix mine - so for future fixers, try that part without taking off ZR first. :) THANK YOU for creating this tutorial. This fix WAS SO EASY compared to the 3DS XL fixes I did in the past.

You have a point. But it’s probably better to remove it because the chances of breaking it are quite high. These are very sensitive cables, but you were lucky. Someone else though might not be.

The 12 year-old repair guy -

I do understand that not taking it off can be difficult, but I also know that putting it back on after taking it off is a pain, because you have to adjust it in a way so you don't destroy the button like I did. If you do have to put it back on, I suggest you take a thin ridged object to put over the button while putting the plastic button piece back in.
