Manual Top Operation

New owner here ... I searched this forum, but got nothing on my topic. I've been reading through owner's manual .. if no power to the car (emergency with a rain storm approaching), one can raise the top manually by releasing the pressure from the hydraulic something or another, using the supplied tool (I suspect some type of wrench). Where in the heck is this supplied tool? I can see the top of the nut that you're supposed to turn to release the pressure, but there is no indication of what this tool looks like or where it is located. I hope to never have to do this, but I would rather know and be prepared. Another question ... where in the heck is the battery? TIA

The battery is in the trunk where the spare would go

The tool was in a plastic bag in my glove compartment.

Thanks. No plastic bag in my glove compartment. I emailed the salesman. He wants 5stars on every survey item, so I'm sure he'll come up with it.
