Curado star drag frozen

I'm posting for a friend whose Curado star drag knob is frozen. "Stuck like Chuck," as he puts it. I'm not sure which model, but it's a couple of years old. I've worked on these reels a few times before, but not sure how to approach this problem. Any ideas?

Gonna have to soak it if its rusted shut. Try the easy way first and hot water then start adding chemicals that break up rust. Might have to go to ultrasonic cleaner.

I bet it is a Curado G series. The drive shaft is a funky metal that did not respond well to saltwater and experienced galvanic corrosion with the brass drag nut. You will need to remove the handle and star drag so you can put a wrench on the nut. If it's bad enough that you can't turn it using the star drag you will probably ly have to replace the shaft.

So my buddy managed to fix it himself, but I passed along y'all's information. Yep, it's a G model. Thanks for the help.
