remove spare tire, then the plastic tray, and you will see the hydraulic resevoir for the top. Check level, you might be low on fluid. Next, in your tool pouch, you should find a flat wrench. Look on the back wall of the trunk, and you will see two little carpeted covers. Remove these and insert wrench to disengage latches manually. Hope this helps!
