Introduction: Logitech Performance MX: Fix Middle Click

this is how to fix the middle click of your Logitech Performance MX mouse.

Normally if you press on the wheel, the wheel should go down and press a button. That doesn't work too well on some models of the performance mx.
So if you put a little bit of hot glue on the wheel container, the container can reach more easily the button on the PCB. This is what you will do at this tutorial. You should be able to follow this tutorial easily if you have your Performance MX in front of you.

This is for people who:
  * have some technical knowledge
  * don't care about loosing warranty

You will need:
  * Screwdriver
  * Hot glue

Ready? OK let's start!

***This will void your warranty***

Step 1: Open Your Mouse

To open do the following steps:

*Turn mouse off
*Remove battery
*Remove these sliders (Carefully!)
*Unscrew the 4 screws

Then carefully open the Mouse.

Step 2: [Optional] Disconnect Top

For more comfortable working just plug this cable out. (take a look at the photo)

Step 3: Disassembly of the Wheel Container

Pull out this plastic pin shown in the picture. After this you can lift the wheel up, but be careful with the two clips.

Step 4: Fix the Wheel

Now you just need some hot glue. Put a SMALL point (really  just a small point) of hot glue at the position seen at the photo.

After you did this, you will be able to press the small button on the PCB with less force.

Step 5: Reassemble the Mouse

Reassemble the mouse by doing the steps backwards. You can test the mouse before closing it completely. If you didn't used the right amount of glue just try again.

After this you can really enjoy your Performance MX mouse! Have fun!
