jimsweet, Have you looked in the Library? Lots of information on everything! I'm sure someone will come along shortly with a link to it and other info., Meantime---Welcome from Forney Texas!!! You will discover that you have found the BEST FORUM ever! -----Consider going to "Tools" in the red banner, click on "User CP" go to "Your Profile" then click "Edit Your Details". Then, whenever you "post" something it will show in the left column under your name, like the rest of us, and we will know where you are and what you drive. Then when you have a problem, someone close by might be able to help out.
--Also if you haven't yet, go to "FOURMS", "SSRFanatics News & Polls", "New Member section" and introduce Yourself!
If the cover does not go up it may be sticking on something. Use the buddy system and have one person assist the lift of the top while the second is pushing the button. Don’t use a lot of force. Once it’s open there are a few things to check that may be the cause. Check the library. A lot of info there
If all else fails you may need to do a manual release and use the top tool to open it.
