Ds is now FF full time, and the Signo really is a great seat. Easy to adjust, a snap to install, and I do trust it. Between the SIP wings and the side airbags, I feel that if someone hit us from the side, he'd be protected.
Mine went on very tightly and could not possibly come off. I wonder why yours did?So I figured out how to remove the back access panel. It took me a minute to realize the plate was on the BOTTOM of the seat. I felt it and realized it was there. I loosened the harness, and up came the plate MISSING one of the end caps. It fell off when I adjusted the harness. I was happy they were there but the plastic seems to be very thin (not at all as thick as one of the key plastic protectors one poster indicated) and easily came off. I was able to stick it back on, very easily, and two little shakes of the plastic fix make it wiggle off again. ???
I slowly tightened it to get it back to it's home place of under the seat area and felt to be sure it's intact.
Should I be worried about this? I mean, it did not seem like a concrete fix if one if falling off that easily!
I got a total of 6 recall kits I think for 2 seatsThe end cap shouldn't fall off or come off the harness splitter plate so easily IMHO. I would have to really tug at the end caps on ours to remove them from the splitter plate. I think you need to contact Recaro and ask them to send you a replacement end cap, or caps if there's any sign of both caps being loose, and hopefully it won't take very long for them to send it to you. Recaro actually ended up sending me an extra recall kit (3 kits for 2 seats, oops), but I can't figure out where I or my kids have misplaced the extra one. If it turns up, I'll PM you. In the meantime, Recaro is likely to advise you to double check that the harness is connected to the splitter plate each time you use the seat. You're going to use the seat rear facing, right? Leaving the plastic harness cover off the back of the Signo will make it easier to double check that the straps are fully on the splitter plate.
