Tldr: tct won't compress to be removed, can I just unbolt anyways?
Nearing 200k miles on my 2006 si. Pulled the engine and trans to replace timing chain and tct among many other things. I've got the timing chain cover removed and am ready to remove the tct. However, when turning the crankshaft counter clockwise, the orange tab on the tct is not moving (tct isn't compressing at all). What can I do to compress, or is it safe to just unbolt the tct even with tension on it?
