Microsoft starts offering replacement parts for Xbox wireless grips for easy DIY repairs

Microsoft in June had announced that it would provide official replacement parts for its Surface PC products so that DIY device repair enthusiasts can buy them on their own. Today, the company quietly expanded this program by adding replacement parts for Xbox Wireless Grip and Xbox Elite Grip Generation 2 products.

A page on the Microsoft Store website shows that these replacement parts include the top covers and buttons for both grips. In addition, Microsoft sells parts such as input circuit boards and motor assemblies for the Xbox grips. All of these parts come with a one-year warranty.

Microsoft has made it clear on a new support page that these parts should only be used for Xbox grips that are past their normal warranty period. On another support page, Microsoft adds:

This type of repair requires a certain level of skill and is suitable for hobbyists, professionals, or those with experience in electronic disassembly. If this is your first attempt at repair, please be careful and follow our safety advice and step-by-step instructions.

Microsoft also says that repairing the handle requires some tools that are not sold directly by Microsoft. They include a plastic pry bar, TR8 and T5 Torx screwdriver bits, and plastic tweezers. Microsoft has provided PDF files and posted video tutorials on YouTube that instruct users on how to repair the Xbox Wireless Grip and Xbox Elite Grip Generation 2.

However, Microsoft also states that failure to follow repair instructions, use the correct tools, or use parts not sold directly by Microsoft “could result in serious personal injury, death, and/or damage to the product or other property.”
