Got back my ME Super

After sending it into Eric for repair of faulty electronics (the metering system was off and the shutter speeds wouldn't work correctly), I got it back today only to have the rewind wheel detach. I could probably fix this, but getting the door open will be tricky...

Any advice?

Btw, this is not intended to bash on Eric, as he did a great job with the CLA, but for something minor like the glue being crappy is a little disappointing :ugh:

+1 to the usefullness of paperclips! Got the door open, getting the wheel on was easy.

Off to put a roll through!

Ah man... what a terrible day. Went out and got a roll, film fell out of my pocket while I was riding back. By the time I found it, someone had already run it over.

Glue? Isn't the knob attached to the shaft by a screw?
Contact Eric. I'm sure he'll help you straighten it out.

Yeah, it had fallen into the film compartment, but once I popped it open with a paperclip it was easy to reattach. No need to bother Eric anymore
