    there is no "manual" way to remove the hard top or to operate the soft top. all of the operations are done by
    hydraulic cylinders and should never be forced or pushed.
    you could have a leaking cylinder or low fluid in the pump
    and this should be checked at a MB specialty repair shop
    ONLY. they will be able to diagnose the problem.

    Overbys Hello friend, I do not wrung out well, I know that this procedure of removing the hard top is tricky, but forgot to mention that when I press the button on the wind screen roll bar does not rise, shows no sign of life. By which I think is an electrical problem, please inform me where is located the fuses or grate for these switches.
    Note: where can I get / buy the key to take the soft top manually. thanks
