Replacing Snap-in Pots
I don’t send out instructions with the audio-taper snap-in pots because I think the process is fairly straightforward. Some people have asked for more guidance, however, so I added this video.
When you install the new pot, make sure it is fully seated and that you fill the spring holes with solder. Heat the spring, not the trace, so you don’t lift it. There should be enough conducted heat so that solder flows easily onto the trace and fills the center hole.
