Question RESOLVED - Strange hook by rear light

Hi,

today I was fixing the stop light and saw a funny metal wire with hook at the end. Obviously I was afraid I unhook it from somewhere but couldn't find where it would fit. I made a photo through first-aid kit hole.

Can anyone tell me if it's supposed to be loose like that?

Thanks!

Yes, should be loose.

You pull on that and it's twin on the other side when manually operating the roof.

It's in your manual.

These threads have it somewhere.

OK, thanks for all the answers!

And you know how the old saying goes; "When everything else fails... read the manual"
