My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

I don't see a manual way to open this here.Usually, you can open the top and when it gets to the point you need it at you can turn off the key and it should hold temporarily but keep in mind it may fold down or up on its own so keep your eyes open for that so it doesn't harm you.The only manual procedure I see for the convertible top is posted below.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
