Default Computer mouse switch going bad

guess that switch is going bad. There dont seem to be any place to get
some contact cleaner inside of it.

Have any of you ever found a way to repair these switches?

Yea, I know computer mice are cheap, but I need a PS/2 connector and
want a ball mouse. I dont like the infared mice, and can not use a USB
mouse on my Windows 98 computer.

So, I have to order this on ebay since all the ones in the stores are
USB and infared these days.

So, until I can get one from ebay, is there any temporary fix? (The
other mouse functions work fine).

I just got a packet of 10 mouse switches from Aliexpress for $3.

I don't think he'll buy from Aliexpress, too cheap and he doesn't like the
free shipping you can get. All kidding aside, he doesn't like buying
Chinese when he can get a part sold in the USA even though they are all the
same parts.
