I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question
First, have someone push down on the top as you pull the red strap to release it. If that doesnt work, try the following:
Prerequisite: Convertible top stowed in convertible top box and drive units connected up.
Turn ignition lock into "0" setting.
Move convertible top switch into "open" position and hold down.
Turn ignition lock into "R" (radio setting) setting.
After approx. 10 seconds, the convertible top lid starts to close.
Convertible top switch can now be releasedNote:The initialization sequence can only be interrupted by turning the ignition lock into setting "0".Now completely close the convertible top (perform function check).
