Driveline tension and compression will probably make turning the rear wheels impossible if the clutch is in. To turn the engine over manually, you'll need to put your Z in neutral and use a ratchet and socket on the crank pulley.

the starter is fine it clicks but won’t turn
The click is just the solenoid - not the starter
The battery could be low
The starter may not be engaging the ring gear - also preventing the current flowing to the starter

As per the reply from dkmura, put the transmission in neutral and use a spanner on the crank pulley to check the engine rotation
