Baofeng UV-5RA+ portable transceiver – Volume potentiometer repair

This 5W portable from Baofeng (China) has been setting the internet on fire for years, and has fans and haters all over the world. Mine has faithfully served for almost 10 years and I have nothing to reproach.
After a long non-use, I turned it on and found that the volume potentiometer was damaged. Unfortunately, it is a potentiometer and not an encoder, as with UV-3, its 3W smaller brother, so it is subject to wear, especially since they are trying to keep the price low, the cheapest materials are used.
