Default Taking out scroll wheel.

My Scroll Wheel really REALLY acts up. I just touch it lightly (not rotating it) and it still moves. I try to choose a song, and it's nearly impossible.

I saw some other guy with the same problem, and someone answered him saying to take out the wheel and take out the dirt.

My question is how do I take out the wheel... just pop it open?

EDIT: I popped open the wheel, cleaned the wheel, but the mini-wheel under it still goes crazy when my MP3 is on. I'm where it says Alps, and the mini-wheel is there. What else can I do?

Here's a guide to making the wheel smooth. You can follow it as a cleaning guide too. I'd use a cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol to clean it.

I had a sansa that even after cleaning it it would still not move right. I bought a 250 w/ broken LCD off ebay for about $5 and put the wheel and innerds from that in mine and it fixed the problem.
