Made it! Tried first if the problem wasn't internal to the clicker itself. I didn't have super glue here right now so I used paper and glue instead.

Thanks, this helped me to fix my mouse!
Also I fixed my older mouse with hockey tape, it seems to work too.

so you essentially padded the clicker thing with glue to get it to work better? glad you were able to fix it!

Pretty much! Thanks!
