There is a pull cord under the driver's side rear seat. Pull hard on it and you will dis-engage the top from the electric motor. I DO NOT know how to get it back engaged, but you probably need to take it in to your mechanic anyway. Unfortunately, when I discovered how to use the manual method of opening, it cost me $800.00 for a new convertable top motor! Good luck! Ric

Vw convertable top


There are two strings in your top...they are red I believe...look down inside the sides of the top...pull them up to release the tension on the top....then open your trunk lid and on the left side there is a little switch turn it counter clockwise then you should be able to release your top and put it up manually....then latch it into place...then go back to your trunk and turn the switch back....it should work fine
