Oculus controller starting to get stuck.

I can feel the trigger (trigger for pointer finger) starting to get stuck. It's not terrible but sometimes I will feel a little resistance. Is it possible to get replacement without buying a set of controllers for 100$ or is there a fix?

    You could try blowing it out with a can of compressed air. I don't think I'd be using any kind of lubricant on it though.

    How long have you had your controllers?

    about 3 or 4 months after i got mine, the right trigger started “sticking”, i took a close look and it turns out that the padding that goes in between the back of trigger and the plastic had come off and a piece of it had lodged ib between the seam where the trigger separates from the controller. i popped it out with a paper clip and its been fine, but i still have one that “clicks” and one that doesnt due to the loss of the padding.

    oculus said they would replace it but i would have had to send mine back in, never bothered
