How to Tear Down Microsoft Surface Precision Mouse

  1. Remove the top cover
    To get inside the Surface Precision Mouse you need to pull the top cover of the mouse by starting from the left and right buttons.
    NoteYou might need a heat gun to loosen the excessive adhesive (likely a permanent glue) under the cover or you will need to pull them very hard to get it separated.
    ImportantDo it at your own risk!!! As a result, my Surface Precision Mouse right-click button become unstable after torn them apart.
  2. Remove the 5 screws
    There are five Torx screws underneath the mouse cover. Remove those screws to get into the circuit board and battery section.
