  1. ELITE CONTROLLER RUBBER GRIPS FALLING OFF


    I've had my controller only for a few months and I noticed last night the rubber grips are falling off of the right hand side of the controller. Looked at it today and it's getting worse and I can see the left side of the controller the rubber grips are
    starting to separate too. Looking at the design there is literally nothing holding these grips in place besides some glue near the center of the pads. Forced to switch back to my old $40 controller that I've had for over a year. $150 wasted.

    :)

    Xbox one Elite Controller grips - Rubber falling off.

    I believe they will repair or replace the grips if you send them in for service.

    Here is the info on getting the elite Controller serviced.
    Servicing your Xbox Elite Controller
    You will put in a service request here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/devices
    under your console. Change the category to Accessories and then under select issue type select Elite Controller. Then input your PID number from the controller and click create repair order.

    ELITE CONTROLLER RUBBER GRIPS FALLING OFF

    I had the same issue, unfortunately it was with the super limited Gears of War edition elite controller, so there was nothing they could do about it because I would have to send it in for the black standard version.

    Only options you have is try to re glue them on, but it won't matter long as the rubber strenches and won't fit at all. Mine is a mess. Or, you can call customer support and they will make a ticket for you to send it in to get a replacement one, at least
    that's what my only option was.

    But no way was I going to send in my limited GoW one just to have them throw it away. It's disappointing for sure.

  5. If you don't want to bother with MS support (I didn't, the warranty was well past on mine), you can find replacement grips for the Elite controller at Amazon. Just do a search for XB1 elite grips. They have custom ones and you can even find the standard
    replacement grips for about $10 U.S.

    Doesn't sound like you've had much luck with yours, but mine lasted a good 1.5 years before the R grip started loosening. I game every. night. 5 hours is the lesser of my sessions, they're usually longer. Add that up and my controller easily had close to
    3k hours of play time before the grip started giving. If I had no choice but to buy a whole new controller, I may not be so forgiving... but since I didn't... and considering how much handling those grips tolerated, I can live with a $10 repair.

    Xbox One Elite Controller Opinions

    yea that's a nice controller and all but what they don't tell you is that the rubber grip on the controller starts to come unglued and falls off after a while. and when you want to send it in to get it fixed, they wont let you do it. that's how they get
    you with the extra 50 bucks. if they knew that the rubber grip was going to fall off after a while they should only charge 100 or fix the design flaw.

    Xbox one white Elite controller

    Hello!

    If it's an elite controller it should have the rubber grip on the back of the controller body.

    Elite Controller Going Bad

    The rubber part peeling off seems to be a common problem. :( I've seen 2 Elite's where the rubber came completely off and just fell off the controller within a few months. I got a regular controller through the Xbox Design Labs and have had it for years
    and it still works perfect (no rubber grips or anything on it).
