Can I change out the Exposure Compensation Dial?

the Exposure Compensation Dial on my Pentax ME is tilted, so the film doesnt roll correctly. i get about 10 pictures out of the whole roll. i bought an identical camera that doesnt work, but i can still use the parts. can i swap out one Exposure Dial without breaking the camera?

Howdy Catelin, I can't answer your question directly (though I'm sure someone can change out the dial)... I'd suggest you might get more responders in the Film SLR portion of the forum (you can get ahold of a moderator and ask them to move the thread for you - I think you can use the little red flag on the left of your post to draw attention of forum staff to ask them to move it). You may be a new member (welcome by the way), but that's a more technical question than I'd expect in the beginners forum .
