Diopter level and lens release button broke... How's my weather sealing?

Just need any opinions on whether my K-5's weather sealing has been compromised.

How about some photos so we can see what is going on?

A picture I found on the internet. Mine's taped up with a little pin inside that actually works.

I believe that it has been reported elsewhere on this forum that the loss of the lens release button does not affect water resistance of a K-5.

What about the diopter adjustment slider?
