My boss seems to think I can fix everything.. he's given me this MB Johannes Brahms rollerpen which seems to have a quickly shirt clup and tip.
Does anyone know how to fix them please? It doesn't seem to want to push or twist in. Is it a light mallet job!?
I've uploaded a video to YouTube if that helps show what I mean.. apologies for the quality, I struggled to get it to focus.

Send it to Montblanc Service & they can be fix it.
I my experience they have done simple repairs @ no charge. Not saying this will be your case.

It might just be a loose screw inside the pen. I'm not familiar with that model but if you can disassemble the barrel (I assume this is how to change the ink cartridge) you might be able to tighten the internal screw (I think some MBs use a proprietary screw shape but not all).

The problem actually seems to be that the clip has become loose. It is definitely not a light mallet job. It needs the cap unscrewing, then the internal parts of the cap removing for access to the top cone. If you aren't confident about doing any of this then send it to Montblanc. They will fix it for a level 1 service charge

Not sure where you are geographically, but if you're anywhere near a Montblanc boutique, take it in and show it to them. They may be able to fix it there and then - and if it is a loose screw (eg) it may be free of charge. If there is a broken part, then they may you offer you a level one service, at cost.
I realise that's not quite what your boss asked for, but otherwise it's a case of taking it apart and seeing what has gone wrong. Usually a straightforward job - but all it takes is a stripped screw (eg) and you've got a mess on your hands.
This is just guesswork. Ideally, a member who owns the same model will come along and give you an easy fix answer.

It will probably just be a loose screw that holds the top cone in place. However, it's accessing it that will be the problem.
In order to find out whether anyone who owns this ballpoint knows how to remove the cap clutch, you would probably be better off asking in the Montblanc forum.

This is not a recommendation for DIY on someone else's pen, especially your boss's rather expensive Brahms bp.
However, it just might be similar in construction concept (if not detail) to this very much cheaper model:
Please heed the advice already given by others.

A light mallet to your boss is definitely the best solution.
