Removing the Valve Index is a simple process that can be done with ease. However, it’s important to follow the correct steps to avoid causing any damage to the headset.

Step 1: Turn off your computer and unplug all cables from the Valve Index.

Step 2: Remove the face gasket by gently pulling it away from the headset. The face gasket is held in place by magnets, so it should come off easily.

Step 3: Once you have removed the face gasket, you will see two tabs on either side of the lens frame. These tabs hold the lens frame in place and need to be pushed down simultaneously to release them.

Step 4: With both tabs pushed down, gently pull the lens frame away from the headset.

Step 5: Finally, remove the head strap by sliding it out of its slots on either side of the headset. The head strap is held in place by two clips that need to be released before sliding it out.

  • Tips:
  • If you experience any resistance when removing any part of your Valve Index, stop immediately and double-check that you are following the correct steps.
  • Avoid using excessive force when removing any parts as this may cause damage.

  • Clean Face Gasket: Clean the face gasket with a damp cloth and mild soap if it becomes dirty.
