    My 2,5 year old dropped the controller from the table and now my S2 switch is broken (see pic). Has anyone had this situation and how can I repair it? When I try to switch positions with a needle it doesnt show anything in the Assistant software (X2), so I assume something is also broken inside. What should I do?

    Repair is easy if you have previous soldering skills or a friend to help you.
    Otherwise it could be a good time to learn as there is only 3 terminals.

    You need a 3 position, maintained in all 3 positions, SPDT toggle switch similar to this:

    May as well replace both while in there as there are numerous reports of the OEM devices failing.

    Thank you. I will replace both, just in case.
