I did open my mouse to clean but I open the wheel too. Inside are to support torqued springs that I do not know how to put them back. in this case my mouse wheel is not working properly. Can you please help me with some pictures or an advice?

The small springs are located in the front of the mouse, left and right from the switch which is used for the middle mouse button. i would take an photo if I could. I had the same problem before but found the solution.
