Version 1 of the PS4 controller has three generations of controller, gen 1 gen 2 and gen 3 inside these shells is a screw pin in the centre of the shell, I remove this pin so that all of our V1 shells will fit any generation controller you may have, this is a NON essential part and the four screws that hold the shells together will suffice in keeping it all together and secure.
Version 2 ( PRO and SLIM ) also has two generations of controller, inside the shells you will find two pins, you will find these on the left and right hand sides of the shells just above each thumbstick hole. I remove these two pins on our shells so that all of our V2 shells will fit any generation of the V2 controller you may have, this is a NON essential part and the four screws that hold the shells together will suffice in keeping it all together and secure. Please see image one.
Version 2 ( PRO and SLIM ) also has two generations of controller, inside the shells you will find two pins holding a rubber backing for the PS button, on the V1 c0ntroller the pins to hold this are in the centre but on the V2 controller they are at the top, all of my top plates will fit Gen 1 and Gen 2 of the V2 controller but all of mine have the pins at the top of the rubber housing for the PS button, if you find that your pins are in the middle and the rubber backing does not fit you can purchase this from our website. Please see image two.
Version 2 ( PRO and SLIM ) We only sell V2 Gen 2 top plates, and they fit all types of V2 controller, if your controller has the share and options button fixed to the internal parts of the controller it will fit straight away, unfortunately if you have the Gen one V2 you may need to adjust the holes were the share and options button go by sanding down the paint in the holes, this is due to the V2 Gen 1 controller having the share and options buttons slightly thicker in shape.
PLease feel free to contact us via Email or any of our social media sites for any further information or if you need help we are happy to advise you.
The video below is how to change a V1 controller but if you follow these steps the V2 is very similar in the way it is changed.
