No ,,,you misunderstand ..
The little pin just provides a stop for the screw to push against when rotated.
Have you searched for the screw in the areas below the unit ? A previous owner must have turned it too much ,,unscrewing it all the way out ,,maybe they dropped it and it is still down there somewhere.
Or maybe you don't need to do anything ,,if the screw had to be unscrewed ,counterclockwise , then because it is missing ,it is like that has already been done....If you had the screw it should only be turned anti clockwise one turn.
I now think that you don't need the screw to be able to manually open and close your roof ,,,you need two people ,follow the instructions in the manual. Be careful.
Perhaps you can now move the roof manually ? Have you tried ?
