Removing top and frame

Hello everyone, Iíve been trying to remove the top and frame off of my boxster, like seen in this tutorial

https://sites.google.com/site/mikefocke2/removingthetopandframe

But after removing the 3 13mm bolts on each side, removing the sensor, and the 2 Philips screws next to the 13mm bolts, the roof still wonít budge. Iíve looked all over the forums, and none of the solutions work. Any idea if thereís maybe a bolt or torx screw or something that I missed? I cant submit photos because Iím on mobile, but Iíll try to submit soon. Thank you

I did this 4 times last year... as I remember it the instructions you refer to should be OK. Possibly the bracket is stuck in place by oxidation and needs some penetrating oil and/or gentle encouragement with a rubber mallet or pry bar. Just be very careful to not damage the foam liner.

You said Phillips screws removed. Confirm these:
