Clips on inner boot lid moving shelf

Aloha All,
Has anyone been having problems with their inner boot lid movable shelf, metal clips popping off? I drive with the top down almost every day, and you have to make sure that movable shelf is in the down position. Well, the little metal clips that lock the catches to the shelf in place when in the down position simply popped out! I put them back in, but the keep occasionally keep popping out.
Anyone else out there having this happen? Thank goodness I found the little clips to pop them back in. I will bring this up to the dealer when I take the car in. Poor design. VW, I hope your listening?
Still have the windows getting confused and have to walk around car before leaving it parked to make sure all the windows have properly sealed. This car is starting to get on my nerves.

I had one of the clips coming off and the when getting other warranty service done on my Eos I asked the dealer to deal with it. The warranty repair ticket stated that the tech used adhesive to secure the clip to the cover. It has stayed put so far.
The two piece folding shelf that defines the space you can use with the top down, the metal clips are on the bottom side of the part of the shelf closest to the back of the car. The hold the shelf to the trunk floor by snapping over two pins on each side of the trunk. They also hold it down against a spring loaded contact switch that the Trunk Control Module uses to make sure the folding shelf is in the down position. When the left clip comes out the switch does not make contact and you can't lower your top. It is a pain you know where when that clips comes out! :eek:
