Unscrewing? If yes, all you had to do was to tighten screw on it.
If not - spring engaging locking element in body went from her
place - also simple thing to repair, without eved taking off
the cover. How much do you paid? (just curious)

I don't understand you completely - do you mean that, after wind,
knob turns a bit back? If yes, that this is normal, at least with 
my IIIc.

Make some test photos. See if film is correctly exposed. Check for
overlapping frames. This is only way to be 100% sure.
