Is it possible to open it up so that you can see the mouse wheel? Mine needs some lubrication since it's making a squeaking sound as soon as I use the mouse wheel. Level of annoyance is over 9000!

Hi @andned,

Never gave it a try as long as mine doesn't need it. It is a pretty expensive mouse so I wouldn't like to damage it.

The purpose of this guide was to demonstrate how easy customizing the mouse is easy.

Give us your feedback if you managed to do it :)

I to have had squeeky mouse wheel sound with BOTH of my Steelseries 700 Rival. Its so annoying, otherwise a very solid mouse. Would love to find a way to open it more up without damaging it.

You didn’t disassemble anything.

I actually did :) my purpose was to demonstrate how easy it was to customise the mouse.

I think that you meant “this isn’t deep repair”. Indeed, it isn’t :)
