    • 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.

    • Push the tip of an opening pick underneath the mouse foot adhesive, into the gap in the rim.

    • 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.

    • Repeat to remove the three remaining mouse feet.

    • For installing new mouse feet or reusing your old ones:

    • Use a pair of tweezers or a spudger to remove any large chunks of leftover adhesive. Thoroughly clean the bottom of the mouse with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free of microfiber cloth. Allow the surface to dry completely.

    • Peel your new mouse feet away from their adhesive liners and press them firmly into place.

Conclusion

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.
