The tabs on my Lamy 2000 that are use to hold the cap seem to be rotated compared to all the other Lamy 2000s I've seen. Instead of being in line with the horizontal plane of the nib, it's rotated round by 30 degrees or so. The tabs are in the slots in the markolon collar that's on the section, so it seems that it is this collar that is rotated. In writing I don't really notice it but it's annoying that it's off as the pen is amazing in all other ways. Look at the disassembly video in the thread https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php?/topic/227631-lamy-2000-and-the-origins-of-lamy-design/page__view__findpost__p__2431621 at around 57 seconds you can see the makrolon collar just come off. I tried this on my 2000 and it seems that it is stuck or glued in place. Does anyone have any ideas on how to rotate this around? For anyone who has disassembled their 2000, was this Makrolon collar glued in place on yours? I know I could send this into filofax for warranty work, however this pen has already been in three times and this is the only problem. I'd hate to send it in again and find that it comes back with a different, new issue. Thanks. [EDIT] Added photo. Apologies for the poor quality, working with an unfamiliar operating system OS X.
