Where can you order new switches when I want to replace them?

wouter.teunissen - Reply

An electronics parts supply website like Mouser should have them. I don't know what specific switch you would need to replace the ones on this mouse. They are smaller than the usual microswitch. You would also need to desolder the existing switches to remove them and then solder the new ones back on to replace.

I just saw this from the other guide on how to replace the mouse switches:

"I have found 3 different manufacturers which sell micro switch replacement part for Logitech Anywhere. I only have tried E-Switch.

E-Switch TS20100F070S (Digi-Key | Mouser Electronic)

Omron D2LS (eBay | Digi-Key | Mouser Electronic)

Kailh MI873101S01 (eBay)

ZIPPY DA T Type (Original micro switch)"
