Default Flywheel stuck

Friend was running his finger over the flywheel and tried to force it to rotate completely. Now it's stuck.

How do I get it unstuck now?

Thanks

If it is in your car than just use your starter box and just do a quick bump. It is normal not to be able to turn it all the way.

if the piston locked just use a hair dryer wait for the sleeve and piston parts to heat up ...by then you can easily turn the wheel again.
