Yeah its easy, and pretty common if its not used. If you keep pulling it over it may free up and work... The problem is the dogs inside the housing are stuck and not getting thrown out when you pull it over, probably corroded from sitting, if you take the recoil off the engine you should be able to spray some wd-40 on them, work them back and forth a few times and you should be good to go.

Try not to get any type of lube,or oil on the spring as it will ruin the spring by soaking into it,and the spring will lose it tension,or spring...You may wish to replace the rope while you're in there if it doesn't look solid as they tend to rot,and snap when ya use them...HD,or Lowes sells the right size,and type,just take the old with you to compare...

x2 on that, or you can be like me and take it off every other ride to re-tie a broken rope, lol.
