Potentiometer

Good evening to all,
I’ve dismantle a joystick to retrieve the pieces and when it was arrive time to connect the potentiometer I realized that there is a bridge between two pins. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can connect it to make them work?

Thank you very much in advance!

What is "it"? And what are "them"?

Most likely that potentiometer was being used as a variable resistor (as shown in your diagram) which only needs 2 connections so the wiper and one end are connected together.
