Way to tear down my Microsoft Explorer mouse without broking it

I need to tear down my mouse because of the middle button that does not respond properly any more. I'd like to try to change it but it seems there is no screw to do it cleanly...

The only hole that could give access to a screw is in the middle and the element that looks like a screw seems to be more a rivet. Anyway, I would be very surprised if that thing was able to keep the mouse closed, by itself.

Anybody could explain to me how to tear down Microsoft mice in general or maybe that one in particular ?

Thank you by advance.

Finally it worked again so I did not had to tear it down... until recently...

Now the wheel has become difficult to turn. It is certainly tired...

As I'm now decided to replace my mouse, I tried to open it by all means and the good news is that I discovered that the rivet (I mentioned) is a torx screw T6. The bad news is that it's not the only screw, there are two other placed under the front Teflon pad. Then I had to raise the extremities of the pad to access to the screws and I reached not to remove completely the pad.
