Hi dontevenknow2,

You can order replacement sticks from eBay. If you watch some video tutorials, they're fairly straightforward to replace. I have not done it personally, though I did purchase some different style sticks for my PS4 controller. Just never got round to changing them.

Is there not a grip I can just put on top of it though? I am scared to take out the whole analog stick and put another one in

Hi, yes there are grips you can purchase. Again, I had some for my PS3 controllers. This is obviously an easier solution. I thought you had meant the actual sticks were not functioning. If it's just the rubber being worn down, then perhaps the thumb grips would be more ideal. Search for 'Xbox Thumb Grips' on eBay.

I do not have an Xbox, so I am not 100% sure, but I would check feedback on Ebay. Here is multipack that has various sizes. Might be a good shout.

Yes, they do. As I mentioned, just do a search on eBay and check reviews/feedback.

Do you have an image of what you're referring to?

So, if you get those thumb grip covers, they will go over the rounded part and hook over on the bottom side to be secure.

I think the ones you sent me are just meant to be added grips ontop of the grips already there

They will go over the nub of the stick you already have. I cannot find a specific example, but if you look at the below image, it will show the underside of a thumb grip. This one has a particularly large underside, because it is designed specifically to go on top of the existing thumb grips. The ones you will find on eBay will most likely have a smaller area underneath, giving it more surface area to wrap around the nub.
