On top of the windscreen there should be a clamp bar that you tuck the
beaded front lip of the hood under. The catches are offset cams that
fit through the clamp bar with the handles poking out underneath the
windscreen top lip. You push the handles 90 degrees in one direction
to clamp the bar down, and back to pointing straight down to allow the
clamp bar to move up so you can pull the beaded front lip of the hood
back out again.
Don't make the bolts on the catches too tight otherwise you have to
strain quite hard to push the catches into the clamp position, not
only is this a PITA but it also means the clamps can fail because the
handles are only held onto the bolts by a small rollpin which breaks
under too much pressure. Spares are cheap though.
Moving downwards, the order of the parts when assembled should be;
clamp bar across top of windscreen
windscreen surround top edge
bolt with plastic catch pushed up through holes, fixed with nyloc nut
That should do you, I don't have a scan or a working scanner.
