Did that but it seems to have snapped off again. Seems too thin for heavy thumbed people. Maybe they should have used a different potentiometer as thumb wheel axle very flimsy and don't want to have to buy another one of LG”s overpriced Magic Remotes.
I didn't take mine apart I just lifted the rubber with the smallest precision screw driver n applied a minute spot of super glue remote still working after 7 years. But can anyone tell me where I might buy the complete wheel for my other remote has it's smallest end has snapped off i glued that but i dont think it will last very long
