Has anyone had any problems on getting the bolts out to release the front panels from their hardtop? I was rear-ended about a year ago, and the entire top needed to be removed to repair. Now I cannot get one of the bolts out. I believe it was put in incorrectly. Any thoughts?

It is very hard to turn as well
They are probably cross threaded. You're going to likely have to use some force and slowly back them out. Worst case scenario, you damage the ones you have and order new ones.

I don't know why, but I'd be worried if I got them out with force, they'd never go back in. My guess is, that the top alignment still isn't right and the screws have a side load on them that's binding them. I'd take back to the collision shop that fixed, they should have a warranty or be able to go back to insurance company.
