  • Unscrew each screw a little at a time alternating between all 4 so that the base comes off all at once.

The mouse feet are stuck to the mouse via double sided sticky tape, try to make sure that when you peel the feet off, the double sided sticky tape stays on the feet, not on the mouse.

Remove the ribbon cable GENTLY use your flat head screwdriver to pry up each side of the black clip evenly until the ribbon releases. At this point, the mouse shield should be free from the mouse board.

Remove the battery retainer.  Use your flat head screw driver to pry up the metal tab as it is quite flexable.

Only one correction.

Either way you can order the new LY battery, since it's manufacturing date is newer and there's been some fix in it.

You just use a toothpick to take down both old and new switches, and mount the old switch on new battery. Takes 10 min and steady hands.

I just did it, and the things working....
