Microsoft Providing 360 Racing Wheel Fix

Microsoft announced today that it will be providing a retrofit for the Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel in what is described as a “precautionary measure”. It comes after a “very small number of incidents” in which the wheel chassis would overheat and cause smoke to come out of the AC-DC power supply.

Microsoft recommends that you no longer use the AC-DC power supply until you receive your retrofit. The wheel remains safe to use on battery power.

In order to receive your retrofit, you need to visit Xbox.com (British link, if outside Britain, click here for localised support) or call 0800 587 1102 (again, visit your localised Xbox.com for the telephone number in your region).
