Default Bad switch in M65 gaming mouse

I have a bad switch in my M65 gaming mouse and am trying to replace it. Warranty expired a few months ago. I removed the weights, two screws, one side panel, and the teflon pads looking for more screws. Is there a manual for disassembly? How in the world do you get this thing apart?

We apologize but we do not have any instructions or manual for disassembly

iFixIt usually has guides for this stuff
https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Disasse...use+Body/27423

Is this what you're looking for?
I don't recommend doing this unless your warannty is void, as the process will most definitely void the warannty. Also, I've not tested the methods in the article, so any damage to the mouse as a result of following the instructions is not my fault. Please read it and use your judgement to determine if you want to follow the guide or not.

Warranty expired months ago. I always find what I need from iFixit when my iPhone 5 is acting up. Never would have thought looking there for fixing a mouse. Many thanks.

No problem. I put the disclaimer in there in case this thread shows up in a google search, so that if other people have a similar problem that their first solution is to seek help from Corsair - not from iFixIt. Not everyone has the skill/confidence to handle delicate electronics. Good luck to you! :D

I am using an EVGA Torq X3L right now that I won in a forum giveaway. Although it's kind of nice I miss my M65. I'm still having problems getting it apart. The 'white' M65 seems to be slightly different. Maybe I'll have to get a white M65 after I save the money for it. It would match my white Stryker case. Sometimes when I press the LMB the switch will click but nothing happens.
