I was dusting my pc and in the process tripped over the cable for my vive and cracked the front. Does anyone have an idea on how to get a new outer shell?

Adam Joseph - Contestar

I also had the same issue with the front left side getting a crack. I contacted the VIVE support and they said they don’t sell and have no intention on selling parts. Nancy S. suggested sending it in for 6-8 weeks for repair. This option did not work for me so i bought a spare headset on Ebay for parts and did it myself. My advise is to not trust HTC service. I’ve heard many stories of headsets returning over 8 weeks back with nothing fixed.

That’s frustrating to hear. Hopefully the right to repair legislation changes this soon! Not providing parts to your customers is insane.

Richard Suovanen -

Where do you buy the parts ?

xspitfire - Contestar

As of now there is no reseller or seller of the plastic parts for the vive. I would suggest gluing the part back together with super glue or resin/epoxy or if you have the stuff make a 3d scan of it and 3d print a new one.
