    Hey folks, my friend accidently spilled a little juice on the A button and now once and a while if I don't use it for a day, the button sticks for a few moments. So basically I want to open it up and clean it a bit.

    What triangular screwdriver can open this controller? I'm assuming this stickyness won't go away unless I clean it out because it's really annoying now, Thanks!

    Does anyone have any suggestions to clean it somehow?

    Good idea, I'll do that a couple of times over the next couple of days. Any other suggestions if that fails?

    try using an earbud which is slightly damp to wipe around the edges as well. so that all parts are sticky-free.

    on nintendo.com or the manual it says to get a clean toothbrush and put it under some luke warm water. ring it out so its not a **** load of water on it. then scrub around the edges and the cracks around the button. then let dry for a couple hours.
