    • Remove the wires from the white crimp headers. This will separate the upper and lower housing units of the mouse.

    • Don't pull the wires too hard, as they might break.

    • Pull the Scroll wheel, in red, to the left to remove it.

    • This may take some force to remove. Make sure to pull it parallel to the board, instead of perpendicularly.

    • Replace/clean if needed.

    • If your mouse still doesn't work after this step, please continue onto the next step.

Hi Vincent, could you please help me with finding a place where this rotation sensor can be bought. I'm not even sure how this part is called so searching for it is quite tricky.

Cheers,

Michal
