What you need

    • 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 each of the mouse feet for about one minute each.

    • 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.

    • The information sticker adhesive may soften during this step, but you don't need to remove it.

    • Slide an opening pick under an edge of the left mouse foot.

    • 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.

    • If the foot feels stuck, apply more heat before continuing.

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

    • Peel up and remove the left mouse foot.

  3. Logitech MX Master 3 Battery Replacement, Remove the right and rear mouse feet: step 3, image 1 of 2 Logitech MX Master 3 Battery Replacement, Remove the right and rear mouse feet: step 3, image 2 of 2
    • Repeat the previous two steps to remove the right and the rear mouse feet.

    • If the adhesive separated from the foot:

    • Slide the flat end of a spudger under an edge of the adhesive. If the adhesive seems stuck, you may need to heat the adhesive further.

    • Use a pair of tweezers or a spudger to remove any large chunks of leftover adhesive.

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

    • 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.

  5. Logitech MX Master 3 Battery Replacement, Remove the case screws: step 5, image 1 of 1
    • Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the five 4.3 mm-long screws securing the lower half of the lower case.

    • Use a T5 Torx driver to remove the one 4.2 mm‑long screw securing the upper half of the lower case.

    • Slide your pick right, towards the rear of the upper shell and pry upward to release the left clips.

  7. Logitech MX Master 3 Battery Replacement, Release the right clips: step 7, image 1 of 2 Logitech MX Master 3 Battery Replacement, Release the right clips: step 7, image 2 of 2
    • Gently pry the upper shell and lower case apart to release the clips on the right side of the mouse.

    • Don't try to fully remove the top shell just yet—another clip and a delicate cable connect the upper shell to the lower case.

  8. Logitech MX Master 3 Battery Replacement, Release the final clip: step 8, image 1 of 3 Logitech MX Master 3 Battery Replacement, Release the final clip: step 8, image 2 of 3 Logitech MX Master 3 Battery Replacement, Release the final clip: step 8, image 3 of 3
    • Lay your mouse down onto your work surface, making sure none of the clips re-engage.

    • Grasp the upper shell and partially lift up the right edge.

    • Pull the upper shell up and back to release the final clip and separate the upper shell from the lower case.

    • Still keep the two halves close together—a cable is still tethered to the upper shell.

    • To reinstall the upper shell, slide the front edge into place first, then press down around the perimeter of the upper shell to engage the remaining clips.

    • Be careful not to strain the cable connecting the upper shell to the lower case.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to gently lift up the black sliding lock on the interconnect cable socket.

    • Slide the cable straight out of its socket on the motherboard.

    • During reassembly, insert the cable into the socket with its blue tab facing out, then push down the sliding lock to secure the cable.

    • Use a pair of tweezers 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.

    • Push the opening pick under the battery and lift up to pry the battery out of its housing.

    • Make sure you push underneath the battery and not into it. Don't bend, crease, deform, poke, or puncture the battery—a damaged battery is a potential fire hazard.

    • If you encounter significant resistance, pause and reheat the adhesive.

Pretty straight forward manual. Is there also a manual or spare parts available for the scroll wheel and/or its parts?
