Manuel opining my electric operated roof, on my 1999, 916 spider

Can anyone give me some info on how to open my electric operated roof manually. I have a problem with the gear in the motor and need to replace it. But as I have a few other problems with the car that are of a slight more importance, it will have to join the que of thing to be done. But as summer approaches (hopefully!) I would still like to drive it with the roof open. I have tried using the emergence buttons behind the drivers seat, which allows the roof to be released from the back of the car allowing me to collapse the roof by hand but then i can't seem to get the cover to lock into place again?

Though I have never used them. There are two release buttons behind the RHS seat.
One releases the clam shell and the other does other stuff. You can then do it by hand I believe.
