Plastic Back of Driver's Seat keeps popping out

I have a 2011 JGC with cloth seats. The top right corner of the plastic part of the driver's seat keeps popping out. I can pop it back in, but it comes back out after I sit in it. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

This happened to mine... had it fixed under warranty. Apparently they were replacing so many plastic backs that they redesigned the metal clips that hold it on. They just changed these clips for me. Been fine ever since.

Never happened to mine, but was a big problem with my neighbor's 2012 Summit.

I bought mine used with 89k miles. Odometer is @ 91k now, any idea if I would be covered under warranty? Thanks.

Got an extended warranty?

Even if not, you might ask about buying the upgraded clips... whimper a bit. And bring donuts.
