I play on my Xbox One way too much (though my Achievement addiction is thankfully subsiding). Nevertheless, Ive used my Xbox Elite controller so much that Ive worn away the grooves on two of four replaceable thumbsticks.
While Microsoft lets gamers buy new replacement parts, weve spent the better part of a week finding out its not an easy process. For your peace of mind, heres the easiest way weve found to get the ball rolling.
Microsofts website lists parts in local currency, but doesnt list the full price in Australia, for example, 10% tax is added after you go through the ordering process. Heres the final price of each component.
Surprisingly, no time at all. We ordered thumbsticks on a Thursday and they were delivered to our address one within the Melbourne metropolitan area by Monday. Your results may vary, but wed expect a relatively short timeframe for most customers.

I know previously it was possible to create a service request to order parts for the Elite Controller, however this no longer seems to work. Are there any other ways to order replacement parts? I was debating ordering the newer series 2 but on reading reviews, they seem to be just as bad for having issues etc.
Thanks for reaching out to the forums. We understand you have question on replacement parts. If they stopped doing this on device support. Then they may be out of stock or stopped making the replacement components. Only thing I can suggest is to search game stores or the internet for replacements.
