Manual spoiler retraction

I know the Manual spoiler has been brought back after exiting the runway but I’m finding that the spoilers would automatically retract when I turn of the reverse thrust on the runway. Is there something I’m doing wrong that won’t allow me to retract the spoilers manually when I exit the runway

When you turn off reverse thrust, do it slowly. Don’t just let go, or you’ll gain a bit of speed which causes the spoilers to retract. I’d recommend taking about three seconds to turn off the reverse thrust

Ok I’ll try it, thanks

The issue is that if you release the reverse to “quickly”, the “snapping” effect will produce some forward thrust. This is what brings down the spoilers. It’s the laws of physics :)

Hold rudder brake to around 65% or 75% and release slowly as the guys told you!
