Did it get bumped from the updated list? Any particular reason?
In the newest batch yes. You can also call them if you have an "old" style back and they will send you a new one.
Frenchgirl said:Do you know when they began to make the new belt guide?
I have a canadian 2012 April seat and in my Sienna 3rd row, the belt does nt retract by itself.
My seat is an April 2012 seat and had a belt that didn't retract. I called Diono( I'm in Canada btw) and was recently sent a new headrest. The fit isn't as good but I have no issues with it not retracting or falling out of the guide now.
Is there any way you can post a picture of the new guides? Are they new-new or old-new? An actual 3rd generation of belt guides? How confusing.
And the fit isn't as good? Will you explain why?
The guide is now farther out laterally as well as not buried in the headrest. My daughter is 50lbs and almost 7 so it is fine but I am not sure it would be that great if she was younger. Her shoulders are not that wide.
Is it bad if the belt doesn't retract very well? Does it affect the performance in a crash?
I don't have a Monterrey but we have our fr85 in booster mode in the 3rd row and it doesn't retract very well but when she gets in she pulls the belt tight and sort of feeds the belt through so it is snug on her shoulder (and I check to make sure while buckling the other 2 in) and she dosnt move out of position. She's almost 6 and very good at sitting still. I didn't realize this might be a problem til I saw all this talk about the Monterrey.
I have the same question....
I called Diono on Friday to get a new headrest. But if the fit is better with the guide that doesn t retract by itself, I was considering keeping this belt guide. So, is there a safety issue with that if my DS feed the belt???
