Shown here are the locations of the four small metal tabs discussed in the next step-go ahead and locate them, as they are small and difficult to show in pictures.

Using a pry bar, bend the 4 metal tabs holding the scroll wheel in place away from the scroll wheel. The scroll wheel has four plastic tabs held in place by the 4 metal tabs.  After you bend all four metal tabs away from the scroll bar, lift one of the plastic tabs above the metal tab holding it in place.  You may need to bend the metal tab more while you try to lift the plastic tab above the metal tab. Repeat this for every plastic tab.

When installing a new scroll wheel, the center button and the scroll wheel must be placed on the board correctly. The center button has two small indentions on either side.  The center button must be placed so that these two small indentions line up with the two metal prongs in the center of the circuit board.  The indentions on the center  button and the metal prongs in the middle of the circuit board are circled with orange circles in the photographs.

There are two slots on the bottom of the scroll wheel.  These two slots must line up with two components on the circuit board.  These two components and the two slots are indicated with an orange circle in the photographs. Place the scroll wheel on the board, being sure to line up the two slots with the components. Hold the scroll wheel in place so that the 4 plastic tabs are lined up with the 4 metal tabs.  Bend the metal tabs back over the plastic tabs.
