Resident Evil 4 Remake: Church Dial Puzzle [SOLVED]

Rotate some dials in the Church, solve the puzzle & save Ashley in Resident Evil 4 Remake!

The dial puzzle that you encounter inside the church of the village in Resident Evil 4 Remake is one of the trickiest puzzles to solve, which is why we’re going to help you find a solution for that. The puzzle becomes really easy to solve once you know how much you have to rotate the dials.

Key Takeaways
  • As soon as you enter Resident Evil 4 Remake’s church, you are greeted with a huge insignia and color pieces next to a pair of dials.
  • That constitutes the dial puzzle, but before starting it, you need to do a few other things.
    1. Firstly, get your hands on the blue dial that is located in the right corridor of the room.
    2. Then, pull the lever that is located on the left wall in the center of the room.
    3. After pulling the lever, place the blue dial next to the green and red dials and start solving the puzzle.
    4. Rotate all of the dials until the color pieces rest in their correct spots on the insignia logo.
    5. Once all of the color pieces are in their right spots, a door inside the church will open.
  • Through that door, make your way to the upper floor, where you will find Ashley inside another room.
Important: The Dial Puzzle is the last obstacle that stands between the player and Ashely!

Before starting the dial puzzle, make sure to place the blue dial in its place. Once you place the blue dial, the puzzle will begin. You actually need to rotate the dials until the color pieces on the screen match the insignia logo.

  • Firstly, you are going to rotate the green dial.
  • Rotate it until the green pieces marked in the image above rest on the wings of the insignia, as shown.
  • Just rotate the dial until your pieces match the ones shown in the image above.

Next, you are going to rotate the red dial inside the church.

  • Rotate the red dial until the red piece marked in the image above rests on the long stem of the insignia.
  • Just look at how the red pieces rest in the image above, and rotate the dial in your game until your red pieces rest in the same manner.

Lastly, you are left with the blue dial, and it is the easiest to solve.

  • Now that both the red and green pieces are in the right spots, rotate the blue dial until the blue pieces lock themselves automatically.
  • Basically, if you rotate the green and red dials correctly, then the blue pieces will automatically find their right spots once you start rotating the dial.
  • If you’re still having trouble solving the puzzle, then look at the solved image of the puzzle above and use it as a reference for moving your pieces in the game.

My Experience Solving The Church Dial Puzzle

My encounter with The Church Dial Puzzle in Resident Evil 4 Remake was both challenging and intriguing. As someone who has invested over 50 hours in-game, I found this puzzle to be a substantial part of my experience. Initially, it did pose a significant challenge, as understanding its intricacies took some time.

The need to gather components like the elusive blue dial and integrate them into the puzzle added depth to the game’s progression. At the start, I didn’t even know which pattern to follow, so I just kept scrambling the image for a shot of luck. However, after a minute or 2, I noticed how the green dial filled slits which the others couldn’t, so after assembling the green and blue dial, I easily fit in the red dial and solved the puzzle.


Resident Evil 4 Remake is not only a revamped version of the original game, but it improves upon every single thing whilst introducing new mechanics like Parrying. The game isn’t even long to beat but is extremely fun to replay as it makes for an amazing survival horror experience with the right amount of action embedded in between. You can play the game in both English and Japanese, as the game has Voice Acting for both languages.

This concludes my guide on the solution to the dial puzzle inside the church in Resident Evil 4 Remake. I have included everything that you need to do in order to solve the puzzle. I hope that the guide was helpful in solving one of the trickiest puzzles in the game. Let me know if you’re enjoying the Remake of Resident Evil 4 in the comments below!
