Hey,

It's really very simple - it attaches using a tiny screw in the side of the knob (just above the flange).

What you need to do is get a precision (ie small, about 3mm wide accross the tip) flat-blade screwdriver and firstly un-tighten the screw to loosen it, slide the knob on (make sure the pointer lines up with the number it was on before it came off or you'll have to do it again), and get it to about 2mm above the face of the 201 and re-tighten with the screwdriver, done! ;)

No worries :D
Yeah when I got mine the knob was loose too, I thought there was something wrong with the actual pot selector, but one tighten later and much better - they do seem to loosen over time with use.
