Our 2009 Roadster 100 had the same problem.

Two solutions which worked for me.

Screw out the Two Pins slightly to take some of the pressure off the base rubber seal when locked. There is no loss of Draft Sealing or Water Sealing.

Always press down on the hood just over the Offside Pin at the same time the lever is operated.

Try it and see for yourself.

I suspect this may be an example of the variance in Morgan engineering. While I have had no issues with my hood operation I am aware of others with similar cars "Down Under" have not been so lucky.
