[2] Parts required 2/2

G305 electronics including screws (Disassembly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnjzewHyjr8)

 

[3] Tools required
Small screwdriver, cable cutter, hair dryer

 

[4] Screw types
From left to right: switch screws, PCB screws, side button screw, bottom screws

 

[5] Add on/off switch

Pay attention to the orientation!

 

[6] Add mouse wheel

Insert the mouse wheel in the encoder and add the small spring

 

[7] Add PCB screws to the clips

Fastening them all the way is the way to go

 

[8] Add the clips to the PCB
Make sure the holes are properly aligned

 

[9] Place the PCB on the shell
Make sure the small spring sits in the small grooves

 

[10] Check the on/off switch position
Make sure the on/off switch can be moved in both directions and the PCB is touching the bottom shell

 

[11] Add the 5 PCB screws
Stop tightening them once the screw heads touch the PCB. They cut their own thread and we don't wanna destroy it by over-tightening the screws!

 

[12] Bend the side buttons
Give them a bit of curvature

 

[13] Insert the side buttons..
..in their slot. All the way!

 

[14] Add side button screws
You can bend the side buttons towards the PCB again.

 

[15] Add the side button PCB
Since we bent the side buttons, they should already activate the side button switches. By bending them outwards gently we can have them in a .position without any gap. When you don't have a gap, add the side button screw.

 

(G303: Cut the left switch PCB)
If you are doing the G303 Wireless mod, you need to cut the left micro switch PCB along the black lines using the wire cutter

 

[16] Fasten the switches to the clips
Fasten the switches to the clips using 4 PCB screws.
 
[17] Connect the switches to the PCB
Pay attention to the orientation of the pins. (Marked green and red)

 

[18] Add the springs and battery
Add the springs as shown in the picture and pay attention to the battery's orientation. 

  

[19] Check the mouse button height
 The calibration later works best if the mouse button is located slightly higher than the mouse sides.

 

[20] Bend the buttons up
If the mouse buttons sit too low, gently heat up the area marked red with a hair dryer and bend the mouse buttons up.

 

[21] Add the magnetic adapter

If you have a magnetic adapter, add it now. You can get these on amazon. Search for: micro USB magnetic adapter

 

[22] Connect the battery
Pay attention to it's orientation

 

[23] Pair both shells
Start in the front. The two holed pins of the top shell in the front need to go under the PCB.

 

[24] Add bottom screws
Once you sucessfully paired both shells (a bit of bending might be required), add the four bottom screws and calibrate the mouse buttons.
 
[25] Add 3 bottom screws
Add 3 of the smallest screws (switch screws) on the bottom for additional stability.
 
[26] Calibration screw
You want to screw this screw in and out to achieve your desired click sensitivity.

 

[27] Add mouse feet
As last step, add your mouse feet. We recommend Hyperglides (G1) or Corepads (G305).
