Disassembling the Nunchuk

Step 1-
Finding your Nunchuk:
..It looks like this.

Step 2-
Unscrewing the screws:
There are two screws. So whip out your tri-wing screwdriver and get to twisting!

Step 3-
Taking the top half off-
Just like the wiimote, the nunchuk has 2 clips in the front. You may need to use a flathead to pry a bit, but I didn't have to. I just pulled until it came off. It'll look like this with the top half off-

Step 4-
Taking the PCB out of the bottom half:
The nunchuk internals/PCB come/s right out. Just pull up on the PCB. The wire can be a little tricky to get out. But just keep pulling upwards and wiggling. It'll come out. The analog stick also pops right off. Just pull up on that as well.

Step 5-
Unnecessary disassembling:
In this step, you're basically messing with the c/z buttons. I'm talking about this- (It comes off the PCB with ease... just 2 clips you'll need to unclip)

The gray pad thing slides/pulls right out. It'll look like this-

The little PCB also slides/pulls right out. It'll look like this-

And that's it! Completely disassembled!

Extra Information-
If you wish to remove the actual analog stick, desolder the points that are identified by the blue arrows.. and unscrew the 2 screws that are identified by the yellow arrow.
