    sorry, there is no option to manually remove the hard top. it must be done hydraulically via the pump and cylinders.

    there is a manual hand tool that releases the locks it looks like a opened wrench on one end and a 1/4 inch allen wrench on the other end. the two locks in the front are behind the sunvisor remove the small round plugs and insert the tool turn counter clockwise and it should click to unlock. in the back there is a small elongated opening to the side of the trunk hinge insert the tool onto the manual release lever mine is painted red, up to unlock down to lock in place.

    Is the rear slot in the trunk on each side or in the interior where the access to the soft top is? Please verify thanks
