So I've got a pen, leaking at the filling knob side. I want to install a new seal (o-ring) but can't dismiss the rod from the knob. I've tried unsuccessfully to heat it up and unscrew them. Are they glued permanently? Then how to seal the leak around the rod?

Wrap a wide rubber band around the translucent threaded part to get a firm finger grip. Then use gentle dry heat on the blind cap and see if it unscrews.

 

Patience will be your best friend. 

 

Good luck.
