If you remove the pads under mouse, there are screws under. Remove all those and you should be able to open the mouse. Also I suggest you to keep everything apart and let the parts dry for some time before you try to use it again.

that is quite the spill! First power off and unplug the mouse.

if the spill was low and the lense on the mouse if fouled, then a quick wipe with a wet windex or achol on a towel will clean the lense. if it is not and was a heavey spill then you may need a Q tip to lightly clean the laser/LED. If this was on top of the mouse and it shorted out unless you are talented at a solder iron, just toss the mouse and get a new one.
If the photo above is incorrect such as it is a wireless mouse then you can take out the batteries, clean the contacts with an achol swab and if there are any screws on the mouse take them out and put the whole mouse in a zip lock of rice. this generally only works if it is fresh and the rice can take out the moisture. if its old try it but throw out the rice when your done, it not worth the contamination of possible battery acid.
PS try new batteries too as they could have shorted but again this is if it was a wireless.

Mouse pad buttons not working properly. i have a dell inspiron 6400 and my left mouse button isnt working properly! the right one works fine, please help me!!!

If the left mouse button is not working, then it is most likely the microswitch in the button has failed. To fix, you will need to replace the palmrest assembly

Mouse pad wont work after water spill

not difficult..with right tools and patience..the touchpad is part of the upper assembly, and requires that the bottom be removed. When I do this, it takes around an hour.

Water spilled on my PC

Well as you said that the water was spilled on the system,so it might have damaged one or more of the component on the system.Eve if it feels that the system is dry now but the water might have gone inside,so you can call the tech support if you have a valid warranty and get the parts replaced or else contact a local tech who can check each part.
