Default Timing belt: passenger side cam gear wont move

While replacing my timing belt, the top cam gear spins freely to line up but the bottom one wont move at all. the crank gear is lined up, and the drivers side hasn't been touched. what should i do? i read i could bend valve if using force on the passenger side gears. 2005 WRX

Thanks.

is it just stuck on a lobe? If you use a wench or small 3/8" breaker bar you can move it a little bit you will feel an definite stop if a valve touches a piston and if you do it slowly and without being heavy handed you ill be fine

I ended up getting it to move by going back and forth until it 'broke free'. it was probably on a lobe. I was being overly cautious
