Re: roof keeps popping open
You have 2 switches behind the drivers seat on the manual version (they are also there on the auto version but only for emergencies), one switch releases the plastic hood cover and the other runs the twin motors that hold down/release either side of the actual hood. These motors are on the underside of the hood cover and you can hear them running when you press the corresponding switch.
If it was me I would swap the bolts over rather then getting a new bolt, then you'll know whether it's the bolt or the motor depending on whether it changes sides when you swap the bolts. You never know, you might even cure it by accident.
