82 380sl hardtop removal problem.

Have the two front and two center released. Canít seem to get the rear pin to release.
Tried wiggling, angling, etc., but the rear bow lifts about half an inch...and there is still something holding it.
Help please.
Thank you.

Here you go, and watch the entire thing. Pay strict attention to when they remove it and the position of both levers and the sequence.
