Hitachi HDT725050VLAT80 stuck spindle

Hi Guys

Got this drive with a stuck spindle. Tried to move it, no luck. It's very, very tight.
Is there any solutions you guys use to unlock it, without platter exchange?
What's your experience on these cases?

the problem with releasing the spindle with force is that if the bearings themselves are broken then probably even after freeing it, the rotation of the media will be uneven and this will result in severe scratches to the surfaces.
