RMA, or clean myself?

I have a Corsair Scimitar PRO RGB that was an RMA replacement for the first Corsair Scimitar RGB mouse. I've had it for about 2 years since the replacement and I am having issues with the scroll wheel back scrolling itself when I go to scroll up or down. Now I did see a teardown video of it and how to get inside to clean, but should I have corsair RMA my mouse again? Or just tear it open and clean the mouse wheel manually myself? I wanted to ask because I know the hardest part to put back will be the feet of the mouse, since they have adhesive pads on the bottom. Let me know! Thanks in advance!

Whats the harm in redeeming your warranty AND attempting to fix the other one?

Well, it's already been RMA-ed once, this was the replacement, so I don't know if you can send a replacement RMA back in for replacement again.

Wouldn't hurt to see.

Well, if they didn't decide to accept it back, then do I just yolo it and try fixing it myself?

Well if it goes that way, either :
either you open it and clean/replace parts,

or pay someone else to do it.,

or live with it

or buy a new one.

Me, I'd just open , if I end up breaking it then I will buy a new one.

If you can RMA, I would go that route without a doubt. New product, no cost.
