Moving the top into service position

Anyone have a step by step with pictures for moving the top into service position? I am a little slow and need pictures, plus I don't really trust myself without detailed instructions.

It is not as critical an operation as it might sound Cycle the top to open and let it stop when the front edge of the top is about 18-20 inches from the window frame.

Do you have the owners manual? It is illustrated in there. I'll search for a pic or two....

Here's the owner's manual in PDF format. I used this, and followed the illustrations.
