I was messing around under my back seat and pulled that little evil lever that changes my convertable top from electric to manual. It wasn't until after the fact that I read in the manual "to reengage take to the dealer". I doubt, or I hope there is another way to engage it considering I'm a student without much money (and don't want to get ripped off by dealer charges).
Does anybody out there know how to re-engage an automatic convertable top after pulling the lever which makes it manual?
ANY help is appreciated, thank you in advance for your responce.

I'll look tonight....
Haha, thanks. my problem now is I can't get the trunk open, so look for that if you can. I have a Haynes book, but it doesn't even mention convertables.
Well, the tool to put the top up manually unfortunatley is in your trunk....
You shoud be able to get the top back down Manually, but the manual says operation of the top should only be done to close the top, never to open it. But in your case I dont think it will matter because the rear boot lid will not lock and will fly open while driving. So just Put the top all the way up then down before driving this will lock the lid. With the motors disemgaged you should be able to push it down or pull it up.

give the emergency lever a good pull again to make sure the motors are dis engaged.
I have the same problem. If you put the roof down manually on the off side (drivers side) look at the catch which the roof falls into. There is a little hole in the catch (campare to other side to see what Im talking about) inside is a small button. Put in a folded piece of card to hold the button down and the boot will open.
I still dont know how to get the roof working now though.
