Manually operate soft top on 1994 e320?

Hi my 1994 e320's convertible top will not open, is there any way to lower the top manually?

I see this has been covered in a previous thread but does not answer the question as to wheather its possible to crank the top down manually.

No. You can only put the top up manually. Besides, why do you want to open it manually? If it does not work, you have to fix electronics or/and hydraulics. These tops and not fun to operate manually.

I suppose the top can be operated manually. It would be cumbersome and you'd never be able to latch the rear bow with the top up.
