Step 1: Apple IIe Mouse Disassembly
Twist to remove the plastic dial and ball from the bottom of the mouse.
Remove four Phillips head screws from the four corners on the bottom of the mouse.
Once the bottom is removed, unplug the wire at the top of the motherboard; the wire is not needed for this project so it can be disposed of.
The motherboard can now be lifted out of the casing and the disassembly process is complete.
Step 2: Donor Mouse Disassembly
The top casing is held in place by magnets and easily snaps off revealing three screws and a battery port.
Remove the three screws and then lift the remaining top casing.
The motherboard is now exposed. Remove the scroll wheel by tugging upwards on the right axle and dispose.
Once the motherboard is fully removed, you're now ready for the next step.
