My volume pot is loose

Well this might sound like I'm a complete idiot but I'm afraid of messing around with the electronics of my RG.

Anyway, so my volume pot started moving funny last week. I opened it up today and when I turn the volume up or down, the whole pot inside moves left or right as well.

I tried looking for any screws or anything that attaches it to the body of the guitar but I can't see any. So what's wrong and how can I fix it?

If you don't understand what I mean please let me know, english is not my first language

There's a nut on the top of the body or pickguard. Tighten it with the right sized, or shifter spanner.
