    Most mice have screws underneath the stickers too.

    I've scratched all the stickers underneath looking for screws, nothing there

    And nothing under the front 2 pads, so i'm guessing theres some technique or clip or something

    stick a screw driver in any grooves and see what happens???, the cases of the mouses are probably molded so that the screws are really just added security, might not even be possible

    the two half will be clipped together, i don't know where. the screws will just be for added robustness. the good thing is, if you bust it open and break the clips, at least the screws will hold it together again
