I always leave the snaps on the bow. Someone may have another opinion. But my top has to little elastic straps with button snaps that hang down that will hold your rear window in place when you roll it up. You have to unzip the top zipper almost all the way to get to the button on the left. Next time the weather is nice just go out and start putting it down. Its easy, I'm sure you will figure it out. And the steps I listed earlier are just the method I have adopted, you may figure out a faster/easier way for you to do it. But there really isn't much to it.
