Logitech has announced it’s partnering with internet repair shop iFixit to make it easier for people to repair products even after the warranty period has expired.

The program will kick off this summer… but only two products will be covered at launch though: the Logitech MX Master and MX Anywhere wireless mice.

Logitech MX Master 3 repair (iFixit)

You can already visit the iFixit Logitech Repair Hub to find repair guides for many Logitech products, including a whole bunch of mice, keyboards, webcams, speakers, headphones and game controllers that won’t be part of the official partnership at launch.

But those are unofficial repair guides written by iFixit staff and community members.

What’s changing this summer is that iFixit will offer “genuine” Logitech replacement parts including batteries, wheels, feet, screws, and other parts. Customers will be able to purchase “Fix Kits” that include spare parts and all the tools you’ll need to perform a repair. Or folks that don’t need the whole kit will be able to buy standalone replacement parts.

There’s no word on if or when Logitech will expand its partnership with iFixit to cover products other than the MX Master and MX Anywhere mice. But if the company is really serious about its efforts to help cut down on e-waste, selling spare parts and offering repair guides for more of its gear would be a good way to do it.

  1. While I haven’t had it happen to my G502 yet, the part that’s most known for failing on relatively recent Logitech mice is the switches. After a long time, the switch wears out and when pressed, briefly loses contact before re-acquiring it, creating the “double clicking” effect. So, the switches are the thing they need to be supplying more than anything else (except, maybe, batteries for wireless mice), even though you need to de-solder them.

    1. Bingo Some Guy! You hit the nail on the head. The “double clicking” problem with Logitech mice has gotten so bad I now have a box of unusable mice in the closet. I just received a new Logitech M317 (one AA battery) bought from Amazon to replace a two year old M525 (two AA batteries) that has started double clicking. Cheap Chinese mice last a lot longer, but take longer to get. I can get the Logitech mice from Amazon often next day “free” Prime delivery (yeah I know, it’s not really “free” shipping). The cheaper Logitech mice are priced competitively with the Chinese mice that take one or two extra days delivery. I have got to start replacing these defective switches in the Logitech garbage mice. But finding the right switches is a pain by searching datasheets – and I am notoriously lazy.
