Push the button in the middle Of the overhear roof compartment, then the handle Will drop down. Twist the handle to release the latch mechanism. Then use the button on the center counsel right by the armrest to make the top operate. If the top does not work, then there is an issue with one of the Micro switches in the convertible top system.i hope this helps
