My top is UN-stuck!
whew....hope this never happens to you, but there is a solution. for some over-engineered reason, there are latches down deep in the mechanism that hold the top in a cobra-like half up, half down position. sure, there's a reason, but I can't figure it out. However, without using lethal force, you simply push the latches to the outboard edge of the car and the top meekly, (and smugly?) folds into the compartment. there may be differences in what the latches look like, but mine are chrome, hinge on the bottom, and push outwards to releease.
Apparently, the 'correct' way to maneuver the top is to fold the rear window first, hold it tight against the roof, and lower into the boot. that way, it won't wedge.
best of luck, and thanks for the help.
