This made the problem even worse. The flint wheel is now unstuck but it can't make any sparks whatsoever.

me too it will not work i did the same and now it wont make sparks

cool kid -

Did you change the flint aswell? Change the flint and put it back together, if it won’t turn after changing the flint then loosen the spring again.

You need to replace the flint itself in that case.
