Rich.. help?

Their I was sat playing some fluttered octaves..
and I clipped the volume knob with my picking hand and the volume knob has become stupidly loose how do I tighten it?..

I cant get behind the scratch plate coz the input jack wire is holding it too close to the body.. do I tighten it from the front by popping the volume plastic knob off? or what?..

little confused as to what to do here.. im simple!

There should be no reason you can't get the guard up enough to hold it, but, you'll have to pull the knob off anyway. Spin the control to 0 and hold the shaft while you tighten the nut.

Exactly why I hate plastic knobs in most situations,
