Oh yeah, it is for sure!

A LOT of penetrant, around the top & in that slot by the tab, wiggle & jiggle....

bash the knuckle downwards....

drive a screwdriver or similar wedge into the slot below the tab if you can to spread it a little...

If it's a REAL PITA, just put it back together & wait a week for the penetrant to help, squirting more on as possible....
