Good evening, has anyone ever had a mac mouse apart, the single click rollerball type? Answered

I have a mac desk top with a single button short tail mouse, the roller ball will move the screen up but not down. I have cleaned it the way mac suggests and with alcohol as well, also using a lint free cloth. Will this mouse come apart with out destroying it? If so how? or should I just replace it? (4th one)

There are several instructables having to do with disassembling/repairing/reusing Mac mice of various vintages; see under Related at right for some of them. I'd expect at least one of them would have decent instructions.

What exact mouse do you have?

If its the one I'm thinking of, the plastic ring on the bottom has to be extracted with a flat object - which WILL damage it, depending on how careful you are. From there the mouse pops apart.
