Mouse wheel is jittery, and I know the problem not the permanent fix.

I posted about the mouse wheel before.  I figured what was wrong and thought I fixed it.  But it keeps coming back.  When I scroll up or down it is jumpy.  What I have found is if you take the mouse apart and push the wheel into the part that detects it spinning I am fine for a little bit.  But eventually it starts acting up.  Any thoughts?

My thoughts are, that the sensors are worn past the point of reliability. I would replace the mouse.

If it's still under warranty and it's not that old, return it. But the behavior you describe seems like a an older mouse.

I have had it for a while. But just put up with it. Last night i took it apart an the axle on the wheel bent. I jammed it in it is ok. But sure it will be back to its old ways. I guess positive is I'm getting a new mouse.
