    i only replaced 5 analogs on lite and lots on joycons
    Is harder to fix compared with Joycons, remove mb, etc , you replace the analog stick with original black or white ones form ebay, aliexpress, or from your local console repair man, i don't recomend youtube fix with cleaning, contact cleaner and so on.

    They are replaceable, but I personally do recommend contact cleaner. Preferably, get wd 40 Contact cleaner and a little vial with sealed twist on cap and a dull syringe. Fill the vial with contact spray, use syringe to deposit just a single drop under the rubber flap. Less messy that way.
    Swirl the stick a dozen times, let it sit to dry for a few minutes and you'll be good to go.

    Repeat when necessary.

    That's dumb. Not solution at all, cause graphite dust is still there, packing somewhere at the edges. It will become a shit mess in a short time.

    Yes it's still a problem. There were videos of youtubers opening up the lite and the analog sticks are still basically the same as the v1/v2, so the chances of drifting are pretty much still there.

    Only it doesn't matter whatsoever if it's somewhere where it doesn't mess with the pads.
    Its certainly better to only replace sticks every 4 years than doing it every 2.
