arisaka type 38..safety knob malfunction...

The safety works properly...locks down the bolt firing mechanism as it should and releases on turning back to the left....However, I cannot dismantle/unscrew the safety from the bolt assembly...the bolt functions correctly on opening and closing and dry firing the cocked bolt....i then remove the bolt from the receiver and, after pushing the safety in with my hand, attempt to turn the safety to the right to detach it from the bolt for cleaning and inspection of the bolt internals.....It will not budge........any known problems or solutions ? with the bolt functioning correctly, i am not sure i need to worry about this right now.....but, it is the only device on the weapon where I have experienced a problem...any opinions will be gratefully received........Tom, in Texas...
