Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing less. Most likely something broke. To reset the roll bar all you had to do was hold the roll bar button up until you hear the hydraulic motor activate and if you were to keep holding it would have made a loud click and the catch would have been re connected. Try to do that and see if it helps. If not he may have broken off the switch that tells the position of the roll bar and that's why the roof will not work now. It may have to be looked at by a shop now. It should not have been forced at all. I don't even know how that was possible lol.
