Introduction

After a couple of thousands clicks the Anywhere MX Mouse develops a phantom double click. This is due to a grove that develops on the inside of the button. It can be fixed with a piece of tape.

The front screws are underneath the front gliders. The can be removed with a butterknive or Plastic Opening Tool. The gliders have three layers, be careful not to seperate them.

The back screws are underneath the stickers with the battery images. You can either remove them, like I did, or just poke a hole into them to get to the screws.

After the four screws are removed, the top and the bottom part can be easily taken apart. In the top part the grove that was made by the click-sensor should be cleary visible. This causes the phantom double clicks.

second time for me. So thanks twice !

I cut a couple of tiny pieces of stainless shim and glued them in place of the tape. I cut these from the internals of a failed inkjet printer to prolong the life of the repair.
