Trackball Replacing?



I just got my new Pearl 8130 and love it! I was researching around just to keep it clean and all. I came across how you can clean/replace the trackball if it gets dusty and dirty. I heard from one single source that if you remove the trackball once it cracks off a mechanism that holds it in place and makes any new installation of any new trackballs unreliable in clicking, etc. Can anyone at all confirm if this is true/false?
