I love the scroll wheel on my logitech mice.... but sadly some of the ones i got have a noisy clicky scroll wheel. This guide mainly applys to the Logitech Optical Scroll Mouse (OEM model).. but should work with most logitech mice... Opening instrutions will be different but the wheel assembly is the same.
