Perhaps you could try a silicon lube, that are available in a pressure pack. The advantage is the don't leave an oily residue.

Before lubing up the mouse.....a highly suspect fix unless you can control where the lube is going, I would blast that sucker with air while scrolling and see if that doesn't help. Otherwise I think ordering a replacement then doing surgery from bottom up would be the best approach. Carefully disassembling it to get to the offending parts for inspection and precision grease or lube.

WD40 works wonders if you can find it where you live.

Alan, I failed to blast it with air. I dont have a can of Air ATM, and cannot get one very soon because of a local flood. I will try it at the first chance.

I applied some machine oil to it last night, and the issue is 50% cured now. It is not noising while scrolling downwards, but crying while scrolling upwards.

By the way, does the moisture have an impact on it?

Sorry Gokhan, I missed your post. Yes, it is available, but unfortunately I cannot avail it right now.
And cannot get a new one too, due to the same reason.

WD-40 is not a lubricate it's a cleaner for rust... I doubt you have rust in there
It may take a couple applications of machine oil Archie.

MacGyver that bad boy
I doubt you need to take it completely apart to do it but separating the bodies will help a lot
The shaft is the one that probably needs the oil it's just tough to get it applied being assembled

Yea you should read the flammable part too

Oh, I should add, I wasn't insisting that it was the best idea I would try the D-I-Y cleaning in the YouTube video.

More searching reveal it can degrade plastics.
