This guide doesn't go any detail on replacing the spring that is prone to flying out during the strap replacement. I offer anyone who attempts this repair luck and a cautionary tale: even with the photos and a working controller to compare it to, I was unable to tension the spring correctly or find the correct procedure for replacing it. The spring was too small for me to properly manipulate, and I ended up losing it in the controller casing.

I appreciate Sam putting this guide together, but not having instructions on replacing the spring on reinstall was a mistake that might cost me a couple hundred dollars. Please consider updating this guide.

I'm a few months late, but just in case I figured I'd toss a reply just in case you were interested in the imgur guide I made to help out anyone else struggling with this. It's posted as a separate comment on this post. Hope your repair went well otherwise!

I appreciate the guide, but as someone noted above, you are seriously lacking in the spring instructions, which might be the most important part of this assembly. However, I managed to find a way to get the spring seated back in on my own, and so for any other unfortunates stumbling onto this guide, I made my own crappy Imgur gallery guide for re-seating the spring. Each image has a small paragraph beneath it explaining the steps to take. I hope it manages to help anyone else struggling to swap out a strap.
