Your MAC mouse scroll ball is not scrolling correctly, whether it be down as in my case or up or around in general.
Action (Multiple Choice):
A) Buy a new mouse.
B) Clean the little bugger.
C) Only use the track-pad (Laptop only option)
D) Slam the mouse around and hope to dislodge the dirt. Usually resulting in only Option A as the choice.
This Instructable is for those of you would like to clean, mod, or otherwise see how the thing works without destroying your MAC mouse, hopefully. It's broken anyway, so what do you have to lose.
Contrary to some research and references that I have read online, a dremel is unnecessary. I used the dremel during my repair process to carve out the Apple symbol on top of the mouse.
Best of luck.
An Exacto knife or sharp knife from your silverware drawer.
A small tipped Phillips screwdriver.
A small tipped Standard screwdriver.
A multimeter if you fancy making sure the 5v power connection is still working properly.
A small amount of quick dry glue or super glue.
Patience, patience, patience.
