need help opening finalmouse 2015

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
my LMB has become a bit sticky and i would like to clean underneath of it, and i was wondering what is the proper way to open up the mouse.

i removed the 4 pads from the bottom but only the two rear pads seemed to have screws hidden underneath. i can't seem to find any more screws, unless there are some hidden under the sticker above the sensor but i cannot feel any. i tried to gently pry the mouse open but it does not seem to budge.

are there more than 2 screws that need to be removed in order to open this thing or am i just not opening it the right way?

I'm stupid

uh thanks, I've already watched this video like 6 times. at no point does he show how he actually got into the mouse after removing the two screws, nor does he talk about actually opening up the mouse. he mostly discusses which components he found inside. he is also working on the finalmouse 2015, which i can tell has a different build from finalmouse 2016

i really appreciate you taking the time to send me that youtube link though!!!

You wrote that you had a 2015 as topic man. I have a 2016 and there are only two screws that needs removing and then you pop the upper and lower shell apart towards the rear end of the mouse.
I fixed my "hovering" lmb and i needed to use a tiny knife to seperate the two shell parts at first. No need to be rude btw ...

two screws in the center of the bottom feet

if you have a small screwdriver, you can just pierce the feet and unscrew. not necessary to remove the feet.
pry the shell apart from the bottom and pull a bit on the top shell and it will come apart. be careful though as there's a top pcb connected to the main pcb via a ribbon cable
