Re: Spider rear screen and interior compartment
I am not sure about the zip thing - I would be more worried about damaging/wearing out the zip if you did this each time you opened the hood. If the bit of the zip on the hood itself gets worn or damaged then it could be a new hood. And you might forget to do it up again.
Creasing normally sorts itself out so I would leave the zip well alone unless and until you feel the need to replace the panel which is when you need it to work!
Can't help on the catches.
