Brother Sewing Machine ModelXL-2500

I am so frustrated right now and hope someone can help me.
I have been working on a quilt after not using my machine for several years.
Last week before I started I had a friend who sews come over and check my machine for tension etc. I remember she had trouble get the clutch to loosen so we could thread the bobbin. However, she eventually was able to do so.
I am in the middle of the project, really in the zone and went to thread the second bobbin and cant get the clutch to loosen so I can wind the bobbin.
Can anyone assist me. I dont want to use the screw driver and take the cover off but if i need to I will have my husband mechanic do it..
Thank you in advance.
Wall, NJ

I am so bumbed that I cant continue sewing right now!!

I am reporting that I was able to achieve bobbin winding by using the embroidery settings for button holes which disabled the needle../clutch still too stiff to loosen.

if you use a silicon spray on the handwheel clutch area that should break the clutch loose & then oil it afterwards
