So here's the story so far: I've had a 89 for a year now and few months ago I couldn't use the modeling sounds because pushing the modeling knob didn't activate the modeling mode anymore. Naturally I returned the guitar back to my dealer and got it back today and it worked for an hour or so but now it's dead again.

 

I checked the information on what they had done and it said they had only reattached the knob. So long story short, how do I reattach the damn thing? or do I send the guitar back again?

Ok, I figured out that you can just pull them off but now I can see that the plastic part of the knob that goes inside is broken. The guys that "repaired" the guitar that came across 3 countries didn't bother to replace the thing? Unbelievable.. Any suggestions on how to fix this thing?

It works now but every time I use it I have to take the knob off and and put it back on afterwards. Guess I'll have to live with it.

just take a small bit of paper ... ball it up and put it in the knob... making it so it won't go down far enough to get stuck.

the paper fix here is in regards to a variax and not a pod.

Thanks for this hint. I had the same problem. A bit of plumber tape did the trick B)
