    Elite Controller Rubber Grips Are Falling Off.


    Hello,

    My Elite Controller Rubber Grips Are Falling Off and I cannot get ahold of anyone via chat or phone support to figure out what needs to be done. I have had this controller since January 2019 and now the rubber pads on all the corners are peeling away?

    Is this a defect that you are repairing?

    Thank you.

    :)

    ELITE CONTROLLER RUBBER GRIPS FALLING OFF

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).
