    I'd say that it's stuck....

    Try a shot of WD40 and leave it for a few hours. That should free it up. Otherwise you need to take the cap off and clean and otherwise clean it up. Aluminium can corrode pretty bad from the elements and if some grit got stuck down the groove between the cap and adjuster things could get ugly.

    Turn to collar up to expose the bottom threads, inspect the threads for small rocks and debris. I've had similar issues with the coilovers on my car. Use a stiff bristle brush to clean the threads.
