Use this guide to access the vibration motors on DualShock 3 controllers. The two vibration motors are slightly different and thus are non-interchangeable.

  1. Remove the five 7.2 mm Phillips screws securing the rear cover to the controller.

  2. Press on the rear cover between the analog sticks and slightly lift the lower edge of it away from the rest of the controller.

    Es ist nicht ganz eindeutig das zwischen den beiden Analog-Sticks gedrückt werden muss. Der gelbe Punkt fällt kaum auf. Ein Bild mit Daumen an dieser Stelle wäre gut oder soooo…

  3. Push the rear cover slightly toward the top edge of the controller to clear the front edge of the #2 triggers. Pull the rear cover away from the rest of the controller, being careful not to pop off the #2 triggers.

    • If you happen to accidentally pop off the trigger buttons, we have a trigger button guide to reattach them.

    the "trigger button guide" link links back to this page :o

    I accidentally popped a trigger off, and both L1 and R1, because I skimmed and didn't read this step. Fortunately it's not hard. The tricky part with the triggers is that there's a little spring on them. You have to press the side of the spring that's pointing away from the trigger against the sloped surface of the controller (look at the other trigger for reference, if you only popped one off). Then you just slide the trigger on until the "handlebar" bits near the center click into place.

    The reset button – a small mostly-rectangular rubberized piece – fell out as I removed the rear cover. It covers the hole near the middle screw and has a post that presses SW1 on the motherboard.

  4. Lift the battery off the motherboard for enough clearance to access the battery connector.
    • Lift the battery off the motherboard for enough clearance to access the battery connector.

  5. Carefully pull the battery connector away from its socket on the motherboard.
    • Carefully pull the battery connector away from its socket on the motherboard.

    • It may be helpful to use a pair of tweezers or pliers to grab the battery connector when you disconnect it for the first time. Only pull on the connector. Do not try to remove by pulling on the red and black wires.

    be careful with the connector, it was hard at the first time to take it away, i was close to break the wire

    Where can I purchase an Input Board?

    To safely remove the connector, you can slide a thin screwdriver inside two slots that can be found on top of the connctor housing (the beige colored one), which allow you to push on the connector. Do this slowly, prying first through one slot, then through the other, until the connector is out. This will allow you to remove the connector without pulling by accident on the wires.

    Thanks Adriana. Good advice. My local battery replacement guy will not touch PS3 controllers.

    Hi Adriana,

    I have to say, that tip really saved me. I was pulling on the wires (this is my first time doing this) and wasgoing nowhere.

    Thank you!

    I highly, HIGHLY recommend that if anyone bought the protect toolkit, that they use the SIM bit as that is extremely helpful for this step!

    Take note: The PS3 remote controller in this guide has some white plastic spacers shaped like ( and ) on the board which keep the battery from touching the chip. The PS3 remote controller I disassembled has no spacers on the board but rather the board has 6 holes - 4 small square corner alignment holes and two rectangular retaining holes. The battery was an LIP1472 but the battery pack casing had 4 alignment pins and 2 retaining tabs to fit into the board and hold the battery away from the chip. Why does it matter? It may or may not matter, however the fact that all designs include separation indicates that it might matter. Possible reasons are that the battery might touch the chip and cause electrostatic damage, the battery might touch the chip and not allow the chip to dissipate heat properly, or the battery might simply rattle a bit. I can not find any replacement batteries with pins and tabs. It may be necessary to create some standoffs from plastic similar to those shown above and attach to board.

    Its literally completely flat (the battery)

  6. Pull the vibration motor out of its plastic frame, being careful not to strain the wires connecting it to the motherboard. Pull the vibration motor out of its plastic frame, being careful not to strain the wires connecting it to the motherboard.

  7. Use a soldering iron to de-solder both vibration motor wires from the motherboard.

    • Not too much experience with soldering? Check out our soldering guide for detailed instructions.

    • The positive (red) wire connects nearest the top of the motherboard.

    • When soldering on circuit boards, be sure not to overheat the connection as permanent damage may result.

  8. If desired, repeat this procedure for the other vibration motor. The two vibration motors are non-interchangeable, as the left motor has more counterweights than the right motor.

That is not how the innards of a European Model DS3 controller are. Wrong guide. Not useful at all

Stathis Kiriakos - 답글

Just because the internals are different and it doesn’t match what you own, it doesn’t mean you need to discredit him…

My DS3’s rumble motor died out after 8 years of use so i went out and came to know that there’re many such motors available on market,so i wanna know exact specifications of the rumble motors (both left and right ones) on Dualshock 3 controller,like Voltage,RPM,Dimensions,weight and so.

Please can you provide me the required info ?
