It is very difficult to manually raise the roof. The top system is hydrolic. I once asked if I can convert it to a manual roof and I was told no way because of the hydrolic system. Sorry for the bad news, but the best thing to do is to figure out what the problem is. If it is the motor you can by pass it with a switch.

If you unhook the hydrolics from your trunk it is fine to do it. It is actually quicker if you do it that way because you can just flip it and go. When you take it off, make sure you have someone with the hoses and a cup to catch the rest of the fluid when you lower it for the first time, otherwise you will have a mess in your trunk.

1-pull up on the e-brake 2-hit the "Top Up" button five times within two seconds. it must be done in two seconds or it wont work. 3-in about 30 seconds the top will begin to raise itself. this is the emergency bypass system. Take it to a dealer ASAP to find the issue.

Not easily. Depends on where in the cycle you are. It trunk is open, you can disconnect cylinders from top and that will allow the top to be raised manually, but if the rest of the system is working, it will not be now because switches are now out of sequence. To open locked trunk lid, you have to undo locks by unbolting them above and to the front of each rear wheel. This will allow you to open trunk a few inches. This is a HEAVY bunch of parts that will break an arm if not careful.
