Hey guys, is there any special method of loosening the front bolts, i've tried everything short of heating them with a god damn oxcy torch... they just do NOT wanna budge, there isn't a special key is there? it should just come loose with an allen wrench right? thanks in advance.

you do know there is a special tool for putting on and removing the roof right? it's a little allen bit and a ratchet.

Have you ever had your targa off? if so did you do anything different the last time you put it on?

i doubt you NEED to buy it, but it's really nice to have, it makes it really easy since it ratchets. also it's only 18 dollars from toyota for the ratchet part, i don't know about the little bit for it though. i'd just make absolutely sure you have the right size bit so you don't strip it, then get some leverage and try harder to loosen it, it can be kind of tough to turn if you tighten it down really hard.

edit: found the picture of the tool on the tsrm. #09168 and #09169

I know mine were like that too when I first got my car, I don't think theguy had the top off for a while before I got it. but in any case, congrats on your first experience with the targa off :D
