Technical issues can occur at any time when it comes to video game consoles and their peripherals. Video gamers, like many people may get angry from time to time, which could result in a fractured or warped controller shell which may need to be replaced. Other causes that may result in a shell replacement are dropping or tossing the controller. Even if no problems occur one may wish to customize the appearance of their controller.

If you wish to have the shell of your Dualshock 4 controller replaced, this guide will show you exactly how to replace the front and/or back shell of a Dualshock 4 CUH-ZCT2U controller.
