    I have the same wheel. What is this 888 error about? Do you have any background info? How long do you have this wheel now?

    If memory serves, an 888 error code is wheel calibration failure which if under warranty (2yrs I think) will be exchanged.
    A video clip attached to email for Fanatec support IS ESSENTIAL, showing issue.
    On a different fault I have had no problems with Fanatec warranty support. They have always been prompt with minimal fuss, and exchanged wheel(s).
