Problem fixing roller blinds

I’m trying to fix my roller blinds as the chain has broken and come off. I’ve watched some YouTube videos on how to repair it and have learned that I need to take the blind off the rail and rethread the blind through the drive and insert a joining link to repair the chain. Okay, no worries that all seems fine.

However, my issue is that the plastic wheel which is positioned at the opposite side of the blind, which I am supposed to turn so that the pin will retract and I can remove the blind from the bracket, will not turn. I am able to turn it a small amount, but I’m met with a lot of resistance and it returns to the original position. This does not happen in all of the videos I can find. I’d appreciate some help.
