Open both doors or lower both windows slightly. Release both leavers above the windscreen. Stand outside the car and use the small handle on the roof (which is on the inside just over the driver door window) to raise the roof by a few inches. This will cause the rear of the hood to lift up. Get your hand under the rear window and fold up the rear section of the roof as far as it will go making sure the plastic window doesn't crease. You'll need to have the key in the ignition for the next bit and switched to the position just before the starter fires. Press the button on the drivers door pillar (just below the door catch). This releases the hood storage lid. Lift the lid up and then fold the hood, rear window first, down into the storage area. Close the lid by pressing in the centre. This makes sure that both lid catches are engaged. 

Note that the storage lid won't open if the boot is open. Can't remember if the handbrake needs to be engaged too

Found out by luck, on the boot lock mechanism there is a small plastic connect or in my case colour blue this electrical Checks if the boot is locked correctly, if that is loose or broken it hood button will not work
