Cleaning the trackball has been discussed many times. If you type "clean trackball" in our search feature you will come up with lots of good info on this.

As far as replacing the trackball, I haven't seen replacements available anywhere yet.

I think that when the 8800 comes out there will be more demand for replacement trackballs.
