    I beleive there is an emergency release somewhere, check the b pillar where the wire plugs in, pillar panel may have to be removed to access it.

    Your tool kit comes with a special tool that needs to be used to release 5 latches, 2 in the trunk by the hinge. 2 on the windshield upper crossmember and one for the soft top cover (if you want to open). Come by the shop and I can show you.
