do you want to open it manually so you can drive with the top down?
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.
unfortunately this top is not desinged to be opened manually, only to be closed manually in the event of a malfunction (to protect from the elements and for security reasons).the issue with opening manually is that if you do so, you will not be able to lock down the convertible top storage compartment, so, when you drive, it will fly up and rip off, causing thousands in damage..if you would like to be able to lower your top, you will unfortunatley need to have the underlying issue diagnosed and repaired..sorry if you were hoping for a different answer, I trust that my honesty and quick response is appreciated.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
