    • Flip the mouse's power switch into the OFF position, unplug any cables, and flip it over so the feet are facing up.

    • The unique shape of some mice can prevent them from laying flat. If you need to, lay your mouse on a soft towel to prevent wobble.

    • If you're planning to reuse your existing mouse feet, note that the adhesive needs to be thoroughly heated for them to be cleanly removed.

    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the mouse feet for about two minutes.

    • Alternatively, you can use a hair dryer to soften the mouse feet adhesive.

    • When using a hair dryer, don't heat the feet for more than a couple seconds at a time—anything hotter than just warm to the touch risks melting or warping the plastic lower case.

    • Insert an opening pick between a mouse foot and the lower case.

    • Go slowly, and make sure the pick slides underneath both the foot and its adhesive pad. These layers separate easily.

    • If you plan on reusing your mouse feet, be careful not to crease them or separate them from their adhesive pads.

    • Slide your pick under the foot to separate its adhesive until you can grab it with your fingers.

    • Use a pair of tweezers or your fingers to grip the top of the battery connector.

    • Always pull cables by their connectors and not the wires themselves.

    • Gently rock the connector side to side and pull it out of its socket.

    • The connector is held tightly within its socket. If it feels stuck, try a different grip—use the protrusions around the neck of the connector if you need more leverage.

    • If the connector won't budge, skip to the next step for an alternate method.

    • Pull the battery connector completely out of its socket to disconnect it.

    • Remove the battery.

    • To install a new battery:

    • Use a spudger or your fingers to peel any old adhesive off of the battery housing. The old adhesive shouldn't leave any residue.

    • If your new battery doesn't come with preinstalled adhesive, place a couple strips of double-sided tape into the battery housing.

    • Orient your new battery so its cables route through the cutout in the corner of the housing. Press the battery firmly into place to secure it.

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before you install it.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
