    Soft Top release lever stuck?

    My dad has never had an issue lowering the top on his 1988 Allante- when he went to lower the top this weekend the soft top release lever (behind the driver seat) was "stuck" and would not release. We're reluctant to pull too hard on it for fear of breaking it. Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated!

    I would push down on rear window with both hands while he moves the lever. There should be another cable in the trunk under the boot well. A looped cable thing that is a back up release.
