2008 C70 Hardtop Manual Top Operation

Post by schippnc »

I pulled the “do not pull” hydraulic release lever and now my top will not latch. The rear panel is not latched to the car and the trunk deck is not seated either. Help! I’m stranded with 3 kids and no backup car.

It looks like a four person job to do it manually.
