The nib unit just twists out. You just have to be a little more careful on the model 20 and 31 with how the nib is set into the section. 

Can I just put silicone grease on the back of the nib unit and not on the feed itself? I may be confused

What F-C recommends is unscrew the nib unit from the section and grease the threads on it and the threads where the section screws into the body. They have said they have used them without any grease but to be sure you won't have a leak do both areas. You don't want grease own the actual feed as it will prevent ink flow and not operate correctly. Only grease threads....

 

I have done this on my model 02, p66, 45, 45l. I have changed the nib unit a number of times on my model 31 which the nib is inset like it is on the 20. I haven't eyedroppered my 20 or changed its nib as I've only had it a few weeks and its body isn't transparent so I will only use it with the converter.

Thank you. I got confused when I initially saw the video and though the grease was being put on the feed and not on the nib unit threads.
