Problem when I open the roof

Hi all, same time I have problem when I open the roof :
The windows including quarter ones all go down, boot opens etc all as expected however roof fails to disengage from above the windscreen. The red light stays on as long as you hold your finger on it and you can hear the mechanics trying to go through the motions. Eventually I give up and push the button again to retract. All the windows etc close and the boot goes back into place.

I had this problem last year same times and I sorted out with:
latching bolt (middle of the roof near the windshield under the small hole in the headliner with the 6mm wrench)
When it is come I just moved the bolt with 6mm wrench.
But now bolt not move and roof stay.
I tried few tames but roof stay. On the next day roof open without any problem.
This happened with me 3 4 times I know that I will open the roof on next day but can not use car without roof when I want.
Any idea how to open roof when this happened, 6mm wrench does not help me any more.
I will remove the roof liner to see what is not working but it is happened rarely.
Today I opened and closed 5 times without any problems.
