First of all, please excuse this super simple question. I know nearly nothing about electronics, and just want to make sure my understanding of this is correct.
So I ordered two of the same audio amplifier board (from different sellers), and the first one's potentiometer just sort of fell apart as soon as I inserted a screwdriver. I tried but couldn't but it back together.
I think, I don't need to mess with the amplifier's volume for this project, and I was planning on having it turned all the way anyway.
The exact model of the pot on both of them, I believe, is RM065-103 (datasheet here).
I have no idea how to read schematics, but I'm guessing that to replace it, (after desoldering and removing the pot,) the 1 and 3 pins (in/out?) should just be connected directly, and the 2 pin (gnd?) just be left alone, like this:
Is this the right approach to take? I tried researching a little bit and I think I might need to have a resistor between the connection, but I'm not sure.
