    Basically the vibrator switch in my controller is worn out. SO i wanna replace it. It shouldnt be hard.

    i just dont wanna break anything... so i pretty much wanna get a heads up with whats involved, like if the controller had to come apart? or if i can just pop it off from the front?

    It is pretty simple, did mine last year. First try and use a putty knife to pop the switch out from the outside and swap the wires. I got that far but the wires were hung up and couldnt pull it out far enough to do it like that. Then you will have to take the controller out of truck lay it on a towel on a desk or bench, remove the screws that hold the cover on, then push the old switch out swap wires to the new one and put it back together. As with all electronics don’t touch the pc board. This is the style I replaced it in.
