Oh, you have a 77... I was trying to imagine the metal fascia with

Yes.  Alternatively, you can just move one of the connectors to the same
side as the other connector, which does the same thing.  On my rheostat,

bodge something up.  And you know where to find the rheo if you ever
decide to fix it.
