    Yes you can put up the top manually, but not fun. You will find in the tool kit that comes with the car a specific tool that can be used to raise and lower the top. There are two small rectangular opening in the trunk (one on each side) that this tool fits into. You can manually lock and unlock the top allowing you to pull it up or let it down. BUT this is worse than the old fashion 1960's rag tops. It is meant to be more of an emergency up.
