I could have spent an hour or more taking it apart. I even found a guide here:
veoh.com - Taking apart an Apple Might Mouse
However, I've taken a part an Apple IIgs, PIsmo, PowerBook, and MacBook, and iPod mini, as well as various keyboard, and in both the best of worst sense of the term, Apple engineers to the edge.
I've fixed all the above, however, there are so many little tags, clips, slots, special shallow screws, and other things in hard to reach places. It's all too easy to scratch or bend things during the process. It's impressive, but neither fast nor fun much of the time.
After watching the guide above, which does do a decent job by-the-way, I had an idea. What about my new favorite cleaner?
I tired dripping a tiny little bit right onto the ball, wiped it several times with a cloth to get out any extra fluid...
..and it works as good as new!!!
It took longer to blog about this than to fix it!

I was surprised at how well everything seems put together. The chips are even internally coupled so you don't have to worry about the dreaded ESD getting you! They also have a visual flow-chart programming mode with is also really great in educational environments.
