cabrio top manual release

I have a leaky hydraulic cylinder (the one that locks the soft top to the tunneau cover), the top is latched to the tunneau cover, however there is not enough hydraulic fluid left in the system to unlatch it or raise the tunneau so I can work on it properly. Anyone know of a manual way to release the soft top catch from the Tunneau cover?

Answered in your other post but yes and the procedure is listed in your manual. It will show you step by step and is quite easy. Basically just look for the hole in the liner right by where the latch is
