Ok so my right back trigger on my ps4 controller broke. Is it possible to use a trigger from a ps3 controller for it? Asking bc my cousin has an extra ps3 controller that the joy sticks broke on.....so if I can harvest the button it would be convenient.

    I can't disassamble the particular controllers at the moment to verify, but it is unlikely that they are interchangable. The shape is different and the DS3 trigger seems to be a bit wider. Also this can only work if the electrical side and the membrane of your DS4 are fully intact and you would only be changing the mechanical part. – Faxter Apr 30 '19 at 19:21

    Ok. I didnt think they would be. He messaged me saying I could use it. The trigger is held in by 2 prongs and 1 of them broke. The rest of the controller is fine. It's just that little stupid piece. But I found the button repair kit that even comes with new joysticks at walmart.com for like 8 dollars – Dough Boi Jay Apr 30 '19 at 19:24

    @DoughBoiJay it might be worthwhile to add exactly what is wrong with the trigger mechanism - electronically is one thing - a spring or something like that is another. – Ben May 1 '19 at 5:57
