 Post subject: Noob help?
PostPosted: 13.02.2004 02:53 
K - i went through the archives of this thread, and saw a couple questions that kinda covered the same ground as this, but their answers weren't helpful, so i'll try asking differently.

I'm using the same MS Optical Mouse as in the original. I've got the two screws on the bottom taken care of, but i'm having trouble with the white clips on the top. My questions are:

1) Once you get the clips unclipped, do they STAY unclipped, or do you have to pull the mouse apart right then and there?

2) Assuming that you're holding the mouse upside down in your hand, with the cord pointing away from you, once the clips are released, what (if any) direction do you slide the translucent piece of plastic - forward, backward, does it just lift straight up...?

3) Anyone have any strategies for getting the clips off?


Thanks in advance!

If I remember correctly the base part will slide forward and the top backwards. You have to use some force and wiggle the pieces from side to side. It isn't easy the first time but it should come loose. If you think you are using too much power, you propably are but like I said, they will still need bit of force to come apart.

would it be a Very Bad Thing if those clips were to stop being there? like, if i wore them down so much that they served no real purpose?

we're assuming, of course, that i could glue the top back on when i was done, or something
