Any Warnings for Me? (Convertible Top Question)

I'm new here, good to meet you all I just took over my dads 2004 325ci. The passenger rear batwing is loose, and I hope to repair that within the next two weeks using the tutorial posted here.

My question is this: my dad owned this car for 12 years and literally let the top down ONCE (***128561; I know!). So, should I try to let it down? I read something about lubricating the parts of the top being a component of maintenance- should I take it in for that first? Where do I even begin? I'm trying so hard not to just be anxious and let it down! All suggestions are appreciated!

Just be careful when raising, or lowing, that the bat-wing does not tangled in something.
