Pentax K-X aperture knob

(crossposted from Pentax Forums and Reddit via r/Pentax)

The camera works well otherwise, but the aperture knob has become difficult to work with lately.

Short of buying another Pentax APS-C body or taking it to a repair shop, has anyone gone DIY and either fixed/replaced the knob, or tried to clean the contacts with contact cleaner?

I'd really hate to write off my K-x as unusable. Even though I've had it for ten years, the shutter count on mine is barely hovering at 10% of its rated life. I'm not kidding.

Any advice would be appreciated.
