My Lamy 2000 leaks at the "ears" that keep the cap in place. Suggestions? Thanks!

Hi, mine did the same. I unscrewed the section, applied a dab of silicone grease to the threads and screwed it back on and it has never leaked again.

I seem to remember that this can be caused by a missing or dislodged o-ring. When you unscrew the section to grease the threads, I'd take off the o-ring on the back of the feed and then put it back on so that it is inserted all the way.

Check the feed O ring and then add some silicone grease to the threads
