I’m not sure I see any reason why anyone would to this and risk it being ruined. In other words, what are the potential benefits? Cleaning?

Yup cleaning that scroll wheel, and maybe even the switches if your really dirty. 15 min made my mouse new again

Hello!! It is a spectacular product, with its mistakes (nothing is perfect ;)). The fundamental objective of this guide is simply to answer the question How does it work, what is inside? It can serve as a guide to clean it (either both scrolls or the button contacts), change the battery, etc. Everything that can contribute to extend its useful life much more.

There is a very clear example of why one would need to do this. Certain 2s's, including my own, have a fundamental flaw. At some point, the pressing of the thumb-button, the one located below where the thumb is positioned, gradually results in the button getting stuck. For some reason, this results in the mouse movement not registering.

To resolve this issue, you can loosen a screw located button, but this can only be done when the mouse is disassembled, as it is contained within the mouse itself.
