They seem to a regular problem, my 2001 has a bodge screw added at the top which sorta works, think it just clipped in when new. Unless yours is different it's been added later to stop it falling off.

Correct - the standard fitting is three angled brackets that hook in at the top, and two pronged clips that engage with sprung catches at the bottom - as these often get damaged by ham-fisted owners, they are often supplemented by ad-hoc screw systems....so unfortunately its difficult for anyone to give a specific answer to your problem as they are all "one-offs".....

There was a change to the cover from November 2001 when they added a screw fixing as std though.
