Bestop Trektop NX question?

Hey guys, I just got a new Trektop NX. All those reviews say the front sunrider is so easy to open, but I have no clue how to do it.

I unlatch the header, then there's no way to unlatch the top from the top of the the door surround without breaking the plastic. Does anyone know exactly how to use the sunrider on this top?

Do they have plastic tabs on the door surrounds like the factory top?

I'm not sure what the plastic tabs are like on the factory top, but the tabs on this are bent, so you can't just slip them out without breaking them. It's really weird.

The Trektop doesn't attach to the doors, at least not on the newest JK model. For mine, I unlatch the 2 latches on the windshield and the sunrider folds back. Takes 4 seconds. I'm not sure if the older Trektops used to latch to the door area like the stock soft top does, but the newer version doesn't.

Not sure if Paint and Body is the best place to post this question but I clicked in here because I have a Supertop NX and it's probably very similar. You need to wedge your finger in there and pull up those plastic edges that grab onto the door surrounds. If the top is really tight it will almost hurt your finger. You can carefully use a flat-bladed screwdriver if you need to
