    Broken Parkway SGL

    Hey all, I need some advice. We have a Britax parkway sgl. I happend to glance at one of the armrests the other day and the red piece under the armrest where the seatbelt runs was popped out and there was a finger sized gap. I managed to get it back into place but there is still a lot of play between the red piece and where it fits in. I will insert pictures if I can.

    The seat is slated to expire in a year and the kid in it will most likely be 5 stepping in a year, so I don't want to buy a new one. Britax(though I haven't contacted them yet) will probably not replace it or do any remedy. Is it still safe to use? What should I do?

    This is definitely something you need to ask Britax. I've seen a little slight separation on those but never a finger sized gap. Besides contacting Britax, if desired you can file a defect report with NHTSA.
